Thanks for the respones, folks.
And thanks, Frank for giving a nudge to Cathy's message about a Stuart Cairngorm salt ( http://www.glassmessages.com/index.php/topic,76.0.html
I had difficulty to begin with in trying to locate other messages for this type of work. Of course, had I refrred to the design by the name "Cairngorm" I may have been had better luck with the search :!: Max
: Which design are you thinking about in connection with possible Harrach similar items? Are those with the circle of green and a trail, or are they just the green "blobs" with a trail? (And could it even be Kralik you were considering, as they also used "blob trails")
As mentioned in Cathy's message (see above), the Great Glass site shows a few Stuart "Cairngorm" pieces and they match the style of work in my friend's vase.
It was in Manley's Decorative Victorian Glass
(items 243 & 284) that I first saw something like these, but ...
a) item 284 had yellow transluscent glass around the blue "eyes" [but in the book photo they looked green to me] and yellow continuing down to the trails
b) for item 243 the trails wre "sinuous" and for item 284 they were spiralled around the bowl
c) both items were stated to be Thomas Webb's and for item 284 "... with a more elaborate design of the Caingoram-drops". Note the spelling of Cairngoram which Manley said was as per Thomas Webb's records.
Unfortunately, Manley did not show any Stuart pieces with their "Cairngorm" drops and I cannot find other example in my books. So the only ones I have seen have been via the internet. Hence my element of uncertainty.
