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.

The d'Humy patent was in 1876 No 4217 and was for gold or any other leaf.

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