well, as I said on another post, it's a minefield out there   >:(
with regards the vase I linked to in my post two up from here (Fieldings attribution was 'Late 19th century Stourbridge possibly Thomas Webb')  I have now just come across a remarkably similar vase, so close that either it's the same maker or two different factories had the same idea, and that one is id'd in Truitt's as Harrach 1895, page 59 no 3.  It's different colours yes, and the rim points are turned down, , but I can't believe that they aren't both the same maker.  So I'm now not sure whether they are both Harrach or English to be honest  ::)

Roy is it possible please to upload a picture of the vases directly onto the board and also to upload a clear picture of the base showing the pontil mark and the shape of the base?
I'm trying to id another vase and am interested to see the shape of the base particularly.
Many thanks

There is now a vase on The Gilded Curio in the same body shape as yours I believe.  It also has the applied feet and handles the same as yours, but instead of the lizards this one is enamelled.  It is identified as Harrach (and has a spurious S&W stamp on the base)

Thanks m

I have had a good look and the shape looks exactly the same. The colour of the main body is quite a lot lighter than mine. I am not sure what to think about the S&W signature stamp on the base.
