No, the Peter Layton signature is very clear and like his others of the period (but they didn't realise it was on there because unless you know what you are looking for it looks like the scratches on the base I guess).  The 1985 is extremely faint and worn now but I think it is there.  If there is other writing, I cannot read it at all,but given the other one I linked to in the same design but green colour only has PL's signature then probably I'm trying to read something that might not be there :)

It's really pretty - looks great with my early PL vase also iridescent and with a deep blue stylised flower on the front and looks great on black granite window sill.  Very happy (and made an offer that was accepted so doubly happy).

I sold one of my NS-C pieces and gave the egg as a 60th birthday present to a recipient who lives and was born near the London Glassblowing Workshop, so they were very happy with it.
