Hi,
Is it possible to change the title to "Not Peter Mcdougall" maybe Chic Young?

Re: photo's - for some reason the whorls don't seem to come out well on camera - I will try with a darker background to see if that helps.

does anyone else think this bowl looks like it comes from the same stable?

Many thanks, Roberta

That says "Strathearn" very loudly to me. I may be wrong.  ;)

Would Nazeing be a silly answer?

Hi all,

Not Strathearn , not Nazeing.

 Frank - that's a bit cryptic - there's a whole world outside Scotland!

Thanks,
Roberta

Nigel might know more and this stuff has been discussed before. Cannot recall any conclusions but Scottish not likely.

If you do a close up large picture of the cloudy bit does it have very tiny little bubbles in it?
And does it weight a lot?  is it very heavy for size?

If we are talking about the aqua bowl in the auction lot, I don't think its Grey-Stan... is it?
You are being very cryptic, Frank. :P  ;)
I'm staying out of this - I really don't have a clue about this area. :-[

Sue did you mean the comment I made earlier in the thread about a bit of it reminding me of Gray-Stan? 
Just in case you did, I was referring to this red vase here (see link) rather than the aqua bowl in the Sale room link that Roberta put on :)

http://www.woolleyandwallis.co.uk/Lot/?sale=PG220307&lot=22&id=31437
the cloudiness reminds me of the background white cloudy bit on this. 

Edited to add
The reason I was asking for more pictures is because it also vaguely reminds me of the cloudy white bit on my Stevens and Williams pink streaky cloudy vase - but only that bit. Mine doesn't have the whorls and is cased with a heavy casing which this bowl doesn't seem to have.  Also I don't know if the bowl is a Stevens and Williams shape.  But still, it was just an observation really.
