Hi all

I am so sorry that I have not been on to reply to your requests for the item that the mark was on but been mad busy (you know how it is when there is a bank holiday you have to work twice as hard for the whole month to have that 1 extra day off!)

The link supplied by Rosieposie is the exact piece that the mark was on.

She has been helping me alot recently with some rookie mistakes I have made on some of the pieces I have for sale (Just wanted to give her a public thanks).

Warm regards to you all

Emma

Thank you Emma and Paul for your kind comments.... :) 
It is very satisfying to find an attribution and Tigerchips gave the first 'Portland Vase in a W' link that helped one thing lead to another, so well done to you. :)
However, we have to also acknowledge that Emma's friend had already said it was a Wedgwood Logo. :)

Funny thing is i've already had this candle holder before, many many years ago in 2005, i just forgot all about the mark that was on it.  :-[
