Glass signature. ID = Deborah Fladgate

Hi. I recently bought this bowl in a job lot at auction. Can anybody help me identify this signature. It appears to start Fle or Flo and ends with a t.

Reminds me of Loetz "Schaumglas" (particularly Ausführung A) >> Link

It would be good to provide dimensions and a side on shot. Neither can I see the base finish properly, so I may be completely off the track ;-)

Hi, thanks very much for your reply, it does look very similar. I'll take some better shots tomorrow.

Just to confuse things  ::) the pattern is similar to this piece of Royal Brierley art glass,  ;D ;D

As someone who knows very little about this type of glass, I think the right-hand vase in Keith's pic shows a good match to the design pattern.

The "Loetz Schaumglas / Ausführung" A that Michael linked to all have white powdered stripes as a feature of the pattern. However, the pics in Reply #2 do seem to show a sort of striping, or is that a trick of the light?

Keith, what is the base of your item like? Does the pink pattern continue to the underside as in firebird's pic?

I can't work out what this signature but Royal Brierley is nearly always signed Studio Glass.
I've attached more pics which show the cloudy white streaks and the signature a little clearer.

Picture of base, Royal Brierley Studio is not always marked or may just have Royal Brierley without 'Studio'  I'm sure this is not RB Studio,their art glass usually has a label and no marks, I wondered if this was a piece of 'Foundry' glass, a studio attached to R. Brierley, any chance of a close up of the base and rim ?

Hi Keith. Is this what you mean? I have a collection of Royal Brierley but mine is all the iridescent range from the 80s which all have Royal Brierley Studio Range engraved on the base. I've never seen the one in your pic so I can't comment. It's the signature that's confusing me. The base has a concave polished pontil mark with a slightly rough area left in the centre. Thanks for you interest.

The one I posted is from the 'art glass' range not 'studio' the signature doesn't look like the 'foundry' pieces I have, I did see a piece recently with this 'stretched' red spot pattern, that wasn't marked and wasn't R. Brierley either, think you have a bit of a puzzler here  ::) ;D ;D
