Thanks for bumping this Allan.

Given that the mark may well have the scrolled tail coming from the "t" it is more likely that this is pre-war than post. Although I do realise that the mark could well overlap with the one that replaced it there was a longer period of use of it pre-war.

If pre-war, then stylistically the long vertical leaves suggest the designs of Ludwig Kny with their strong similarity to his cut outlined deep mitre leaf/eye forms.

That said there is a bowl by John Luxton that immediately sprang to mind which uses a linked vertical leaf pattern that has concentric cut leaves within (pat no 29850) - see page 18, fig 84 of From Art Deco to Post Modernism, A Legacy of British Art Deco Glass (if you have a copy available!).

My hunch suggest its more likely Kny than Luxton as it's closer to his work. This is not a definitive answer, just trying to work it out from what I see.

Thank you Nigel yes I would definitely say it was from around 1930ís . Tons of wear on the base and took me ages to find a partial stamp but just the rt but canít see the loop and below an e obscured by wear . The top is smooth but underneath it is incredibly deep cut leaves pattern . Weighs a ton over 6KG . And absolutely immaculate like the vase . I donít collect Stuart but have been collecting and buying and selling glass for over 40 years but never come across really massive exciting Stuart pieces as these. I got three together and will post the other vase soon which I am sure is deco also

Just post it Allan! It would be really good to see it as well.

Got to ask, given your selling credentials, are you going to part with them??  ;) :)

Cheers, Nigel

I too looked through two catalogs from 1927 and 1938 I believe - that both used the swirly T signing.  No joy.

I would say that even if you can find a catalog that shows it, the best the catalog will give you is a design number.  Maybe the Stuart Museum can eventually link that to a designer.

PS.  Have you trid trawling through Replacements Ltd they seem to have design names.
I bamle all snileplg eorrrs on the Cpomuter Kyes.  They confuse my fingers !!!
