Do you remember we discussed this signature on a perfume bottle before Christmas - I was just looking at some of my old pics in the gallery, and I suddenly compared it to the Peter Layton Tabac vase it was next to, now that I have resorted my stuff in that gallery....I reckon this might also be a Peter Layton?

What do you think - the studio was very nice and authenticated the last one, so I'll send it through to them and see what they think, but hey!  Won't that be a result if it is!!

But how did we not notice the similarity before????::)

Peter's Glass making has always been much more artistic than his handwriting!

Well I've sent it through to Sylvie at the London Glassblowing studio, so we'll see what she has to say.  She was very helpful before, so I am sure she will reply.

Thank you very much!

Oh!  How wonderful!  London Glassblowing have kindly replied today, and the perfume bottle is from the Lapis range, and is definitely Peter Layton!

Oh Joy!

I might JUST keep this one for the moment at least I think...  ;D ;D ;D ;D

If the Beloved doesn't realise it is a valuable one....
Thank you very much!
