Much more likely to be Webb (though I don't think that is Lemonescent even though Dave says it is; the recipe has nothing in it to go pink for a start) as John suggests than Walsh Walsh. Their glass is usualy much thinner for a start. I too would like to know where you got your Walsh reference from

Yes I wondered about Dave's attribution of Lemonescent for his vase too, no doubt now that the compote and vase will share the same maker.

I think Dave's attribution came from Manley but although, Cyril had a wonderful collection, we now know many of his attributions are less than wonderful

Yes your correct. I have found through Vaseline glass experts that this piece is Thomas Webb and sons,  not John Walsh.

"vaseline" is an american term. It refers, I believe, specifically to uranium glass that also has opalescent glass in it, hence its similarity in colour and semi-opacity to a pot of petroleum jelly.
So it is not a term that covers all uranium glass. It can lead to a lot of confusion.

Actually vaseline glass refers only to yellow uranium glass (unless you are in Australia). Petroleum jelly, aka Vaseline, was actually very yellow before it got so purified

Vaseline glass is a recent term that probably dates from the 1950s. Uranium glass, an older and more general term, is sometimes used as a synonym for Vaseline glass, but this can lead to confusion because some types of glass colored with uranium (e.g., custard glass and Burmese glass) are opaque whereas Vaseline glass is transparent. Canary glass is an even older name that was first used in the 1840s to describe what is now referred to as Vaseline glass.
