I mention S&W as the brown jug & glasses I have don't seem good matches colour wise for either Stuart or T/Webb and I've found a reference to this auburn brown (link below) I don't know who they are or how they came to their attribution are they one of us?

That the same shape as one of my jugs (and those that Bernard posted elsewhere - amethyst and others) and looks to be the same light brown with a pink tinge that I mentioned when describing my "Stuart" tankards.

The 'Ribbonette' wine service by Thomas Webb and Son's pattern number 33130 was introduced in 1910 and was still available in the 1927/28 catalogue (source:  Charles Hajdamach, 20th Century British Glass) 
No reference to anything later.

Some more photos of the six-pointed patternm as promised.  A turquoise water glass and the "auburn" pint tankard.  The third one was taken with flash.

Just one small pedantry. 
In '"Art, Feat and Mystery", The story of Thomas Webb & Sons, Glassmakers', by H W Woodward [Keeper of Glass and Fine Arts for Dudley County Borough] the author mentions the Ribonette pattern.  I've seen it elsewhere with one b, too.

Not pedantry at all, but in CH 20th Century British Glass there is an advert for it with it spelled 'THE "RIBBONETTE" PLAIN SUITE   No. 33130' and Charles Hajdamach captions the plate 'The 'Ribbonette' wine service by Thomas Webb and Sons, pattern no .... '   ???

Yes i'm going to drag this up again, could these be made by Krosno?, here is a Krosno blue jug next to another tankard same pattern with the near exact same ripple on the base outer rim.
