If it's not Whitefriars.... Elis Bergh vase?

Ah, was pottering around WH Smiths today and picked up Judith Miller's '20th Century Glass' and there was a very very very similar vase (just in a lighter shade of blue) by Elis Bergh illustrated.

Was all Kosta of that era signed? Or is it just wishful thinking? hehe

Oh, upon very very close examination, there IS a signature on the base. Unfortunately it's on the outside edge where there's a LOT of wear.

It starts:

I (or J) N then about 1cm of bad scratches and then O N (or H)

The next word (if there is one - the lines seem lighter here, less defined) appears to have a K in it, but could be just deceptive wear.

I'll attempt a photograph tomorrow when my eyelids are less heavy.  :lol:
