Wow. You've been busy. Much appreciated! Haven't managed to get very far with it myself. Will keep trying though...
Many thanks, Anthony

Getting close.

 Here is a jug which is in the Gordiola museum in Mallorca. The same display is also full of threaded pieces, so I think it has been nailed. No idea of when it was made - probably in the early days of the 20th century.

that's great Ivo.
As a matter of interest, I had been wondering about the foot on Goyjus' vase, I had been wondering if it were older (early 19thc) , would it not have a wider foot and folded rim?

Ivo - this is great. Looks like a match to me. Thanks so much for posting. I wasn't really getting anywhere. Just a vague response from an auction house about it being end-of-day glass..............
Many thanks, Anthony

Not necessarily - it all depends on the techniques available to the glass maker. Not all of them had that particular skill. Add a foot and trim it nicely to the result is stable would be sufficient for many. Folded foot to me suggests a specialised finisher in the team.
