Looks more Jonathon Harris than Tim Harris to me, or is it Okra?

Keith, is that vase not dated as well as being signed? My only two items of Okra (both paperweights) are signed Richard Golding and dated - 2007 & 2009.

There seem to be a number of different 'signings' including paper labels, we have a few by Golding, this one just has this mark (different piece, same mark )  ;D ;D
