Assuming Christine is correct that it is Webb, and I believe she is, how do I go about determining the maker? I can't find ANY cameo glass cup and saucers online.

I believe such items in cameo glass are rather unusual. Might even use the r-word...

Rare. There, I said it!

(I do not use the term lightly.  ;D )

Yes, it is my understanding that it is even more rare if they are signed….. sigh…..

Well , I meant determining whether it is Webb or Stevens and Williams maybe for example - I'm unsure if there are other makers who it could be as well as those two -  but from there it might be possible to suggest an individual person who might have made it perhaps.
Which did you find?
please can you give us a link to it?
thank you
don't worry about the signed bit at the moment.

and , I still think Stevens and Williams is a possibility.
I also feel I've read somewhere that the name 'Dolce Relievo' is specific to Stevens and Williams, so if it isn't by them then perhaps that is not the right term to use to describe it?

It links to Pinterest and I can't follow it any further back.

So for example, this piece was sold as a Stevens and Williams Dolce Relievo piece.  The colour fits with a colour (light purple) given in The Crystal Years, a book about Stevens and Williams.  The design is pretty similar in style and content to your cup and saucer.
I cannot verify if this linked piece is Stevens and Williams though unfortunately - sorry.

Just seen your post above.  Can you just copy and paste the link to the pinterest item on a reply post then?

yes a cameo cup and saucer by Webb but not the same as yours :)

I'm just looking up the Stevens and Williams info on Dolce Relievo.
The vase I just linked to is very similar in style to a vase in C Hajdamach's British Glass 1800-1914 by  S&W in that the vase in the book as quite similar handles.


I think the vase I linked to has more in common with the way yours is decorated :)
