Thanks for the prompt M. Have only just seen your post. I had a quick look on google images for Webb examples most of them are described as Stuart.

Will go through the previous posting tomorrow.

Thanks

So what is the difference between this Stuart peacock vase and the Whitefriars one by William Powell? They both look the same to me! Are either of them signed?

Hi and welcome to the board :)

To which vases are you referring please?
Please include photographs uploaded to the board so that a comparison can be made.

The only ones I found online were two sold, one in 2003 where the advertisement said  William Powell Whitefriars.  And another from 2015 (?) - links below.  I think that is very unlikely.  I suspect they are Stuart:

I'm pleased to say that with a little expert help from  Richard @ Redhouse Glass Crafts, The Ruskin Centre. Stourbridge, my little vase which I'm now sure is STUART and Not Powell, should be back with me by Mid November.It's in a queue of glass items waiting to be 'cleaned' in a tumbler machine at this workshop. It takes 4 days of continuous tumbling with his mix of  cleaning powders.

Hi Flying Free
Thanks for your response - those are exactly the ones I was looking at - one says Powell, the other Stuart, yet they look the same. How do I tell them apart?

On the links I gave they both say William Powell Whitefriars.

I believe they are both Stuart.
I'm sorry I have no time at the moment to dig out catalogue or pattern references. 
So that is just my opinion.  Of course I am open to correction if someone has Whitefriars pattern references to disprove that they are Stuart though.

Hi
I have looked through Whitefriars pattern books online for this vase and found nothing, but of course I have not seen every design they made. I am curious how people have attributed it to Whitefriars.
