I think that's Royal Brierley.
The IoWSG similarity is because it was Michael Harris, his wife and his son who set up a Ltd. Company to design these specifically for RB - who wanted to a design that could be made using mass production methods, but which had a Studio glass appearance.

I thought they normally had sticky labels. This isn't a studio piece - it is mass porduction.
And I thought it was "caps lock day" yesterday.  ???

Not all Royal Brierley Studio are marked,I've never seen one with a 'wavy' rim before so it may be 'Heron Glass' but you never know :o ;D ;D

Similar to Royal Brierley but not sure this one actually is RB. Don't think I have seen a frilly rim like that on a bit of RB Studio and the pattern is not quite right, this is splodgy - RBS is usually a bit more Jackson Pollock... not sure that makes any sense! There may have been a bit with a similar finish on the board recently, I think it turned out to be Heron. Sorry have to dash out so can't search for it now.

I doubt Heron would have frilly tops.....
The white RB seems to appear in several guises - it can be rather unusual, as well as splodgy.
