Another addition to this debate.

Looking through Lesley Jackson's 20th Century Factory Glass, p.18, I came across a photo of two A.Ve.M vases produced in 1950 that uses exactly the same process.

Perhaps it is Tweedsmuir or someone else then, certainly not Stuart Strathearn. Odd that it is such a close match on shape!
