choice piece Keith - someone's lucky, and nope, have to say I've not seen it before.                  It looks as though it might burn the curtains down, too ;)
This stylized frond/ear of wheat/fern looks to have something in common with other cut motifs from the '40s/50s - Stuart 'Woodchester', for example.

How tall is it Keith?  They look like feathers to me.

I can see greenish glows around edges - Uranium? :)
The cutting really fits well around the bullseyes - and it reminds me a bit of Clyne Farquarson's corn-y stuff.
I was determined not to bring the tone down when I started off. Sorry. :-[

whenever I see that picture of Farquarson sitting on the park bench with his sister, I always seem to need a second look just to make sure which one is the sister.          According to Ivo, cutting/grinding into u. glass is a definitely a no no, but they may not have worried so much back in the 50s.
Irene Stevens did an almost identical frond for W.C., but it was straight and lifeless, unlike these which look to articulate.                  Well you're lucky Keith, it's a gorgeous piece  -  congrats.
