Also picked this up yesterday from a very reputable dealer many of us know, the last time I saw him he was on his knees bowing to someone  ;D ;D ;D

The candlesticks i was on about Keith in Paul's shop they must be Webb Corbett looking at yours.

A lot of foot wear and seeds within the glass.

10 inches in height and 4 3/4 inches across the base.

Hope he does not retire, he has a good eye for the old glass, the world needs more characters like him and his wife.

My candlesticks are definitely Webbs corbett, there is one in a page advert in Hajdamach 20th century British glass page 111, i'm wondering if yours is missing a lid Keith?.

Your candlesticks are a good match to the ones in the picture, my bowl is a different shape and has a rounded rim so I don't think it should have a lid, got me worried then  :o ;D ;D

my bowl has a cut rim but has a silver plated lid. However,  I don't think yours having a rounded rim precludes it from having a lid.
I think there were bowls that had lids made in the same glass and like the Stevens and Williams bowls and lids may well have had fire polished rims.  Sorry  :-[
