Hello Claire! Perhaps you may be able to help with another mystery we have?
I had a piece of Oban Glass, unmarked, but I was told it was made there by a German girl who worked there. You wouldn't happen to know her name or anything about her, would you?
The person who now owns the vase is desperate to know who made such a beautiful thing.
Her work should not be unrecognised. Images and info so far, in this link.

Wow! That is a beautiful vase! I don't live in Oban anymore, however, I have a contact who worked there for many years. I'm sure he'll remember a German lass if she was there at the same time. Leave it with me and I'll make enquiries 😊

It is lampwork - very thin and fine glass, but very robust. Frank Andrews, who runs the Scotland's Glass website there is now the owner.
It was made in Scotland, so it needs to be properly catalogued and the artist named and recognised.  ;D
Thank-you so much for offering to ask.  :)
Apologies to all for taking this thread off-topic. :-[
