Pint amber bubble mug

I'd thought I'd monopolise the board today  :D Here's another one.
It's a pint mug in amber controlled bubble glass with a ground and polished pontil. My first thought was Whitefriars  :oops: but after some research I don't think so. The glass is definitely on the brown side of amber but not bottle brown. Click to enlarge

The colour looks a bit like my Ekenas bud vases.  Is that a scratch on the base or a possible signature?

Hi Christine,

I have two of these.  One in a golden amber and one in sage green.  I don't think they're WF either, but the colours are very close.

Been trying to identify them for years!

There's no sig on the base Pat  :cry: I'll investigate Ekanas but it looks like another of those mysteries

I did see this thread earlier, but all I can offer is a similar vase (looking like a very large tumbler) with controlled bubble and a similar brown-amber colouring, with ground concave, polished pontil. Sold as "WF/Webb?" but the colouring looks like neither, and there's no mark on the base.
