Apparently yet another 'William Powell Whitefriars' vase:

https://www.liveauctioneers.com/news/columns-and-international/miscellaneana/miscellaneana-powell-sons-whitefriars-glass/

I also believe this is Stuart?

The shape can be seen on a vase in the Harrods 1909 catalogue with 'The New "Emeraldene" decoration'.  Unfortunately I can't read the pattern number on that one in the catalogue but it's a Stuart number I believe and of course mathces the vase in the Red House Cone in that decor.

Sorry about all this, but just trying to 'debunk' the myths.

you've certainly put a lot of time and hard work into your words m - it deserves to be appreciated more. :)              Of course, it's not us for whom you need to debunk the myths  -  unfortunately, the folk who need to read this thread almost certainly won't. ;)

But maybe one day they'll come across it when searching Stuart peacock eye or trail  :)
or even 'Whitefriars peacock eye'  :-X

and realise what it is.
