Alisa says it is a spurious signature and identifies it as Harrach.  I think she has the Harrach book as well.
Whilst there is no reference for that, having looked at a multitude of these pieces I would agree. They used different colours so I wouldn't go on colour.  The body of the vase is the same shape and is optically ribbed etc. 
I'll go and check the fakes and forgeries section in CH British Glass to see if that stamp is there for S&W.

In Charles Hajdamach's British Glass 1800-1914 I could not find that mark either under Stevens and Williams marks or under Fakes and Forgeries.
In The Crystal Years, the book about Stevens and Williams there was no record of any marks. Just for future reference, not that it definitely precludes your vases being made by S&W, there were no pieces that bore any resemblance to your vases in this book either.
