Does this type of Stuart design always carry the  Stuart mark on the base ?
I have a very similar small vase with no mark on the base.

Thanks for the comments. I dont even know if Bloom is the correct term. Its white staining that's built up I guess-- watermarks may have been a better way to describe it.

Water staining is bloom, I think, as Sue said it has to be cleaned off as it is damage to the actual surface of the glass, it's a bit like what would happen if you used fine sandpaper on a piece of glass the mark left would have to be polished away, think I've got that right  ::) ;D ;D

There are two types of watermark. One is surface limescale that can be scratched with a fingernail and removed with vinegar or similar. The other sort is formed by a chemical reaction between the water and the molecules within the glass. It can only be got rid by removing a fine layer of the glass.

Thanks Lustrousstone for the further explanation re water staining etc. No wonder it took me days of rubbing with a number of polishing creams and polishes to remove the marks from the last piece I cleaned. In this case its impossible to get anything other than liquid into where its stained so I think I'll have to live with it. It didnt cost a lot as came with my main piece.

My vase does not have a ground out pontil mark, maybe its not Stuart at all.

Not sure if all Stuart pieces were marked also this pattern 'peacock' was made by other companies here and abroad. ::) ;D

Goblets often have completely different base finishes to other pieces from the same company - very often they are just broken pontil marks.
But not all tadpoles are Stuart.

Essi it's a long long time since I looked into this topic, but I would also check out Thomas Webb for yours.
See this very very lengthy topic:
