Hi, I am wondering if anyone can help me identify my attached Mushroom Lamp and Vase.  Thanks in anticipation  :)

Hi and welcome to the gmb. :)
I don't recognise the glass at all, it's beautiful though.
It seems to me that the mark might read "Aconite", (the name of a flower species) and might be the name of the range produced?
Cheers, Sue (M)

Hah  ;)- you don't know "folk-driven-round-the-bend-and-not-giving-up" until you really get to know us all here!

Sometimes an id can be instant, sometimes it can take years, but we do not give up.  ;D
Have some patience, somebody else might well have ideas or know.  :)

Would you be kind enough to post an image of the full base of the piece, (we like looking at bottoms) and the rims, so we can see how it's been finished off?
Cheers, Sue (M)

Also metal parts separately as this can often give a good dating

Hi - your lamp looks similar(ish) to some La Rochere lamps http://www.larochere.com/uk/no/tableware/our-collections/lamps.html. That isn't a name for any of their current ranges but it could be from a range in the not too distant past.
