with ref my original post re my green lidded cup, this one I think is Rose alabaster lidded cup most likely  shown in the Stevens and Williams book 'The Crystal Years'
This is a lovely photograph of it (the pic in the book is very bad)

It looks as though the colours have been saturated in that photo, they are so intense, the background is a bit pinkish too - usually a clue.

Anyway, I assume the following vase is S&W too as the colour matches the green pot, a big old beast at almost 30cm (12") tall.

The colour intensity depends on how illuminated/angle of lighting and whether or not the piece is cased in my opinion.
My pink cordial was utterly amazing. (see link) I also have a powder bowl that is quite incredible, so much so that I thought it must the colour Dragon's blood rather than Rose :)

Lovely vase John.  If it is S&W they did a beautiful job of casing the alabaster up the stem over the jade.  Really super piece.

This is a Rose small goblet - it replaced my cordial I regretted selling.
The special bit about this one (for me), is I've not seen another with a stem like this :)
