More information found today, early on Mark Hill spoke about a vase produced by the Harris family in 1986, the dark iridescent 'gold' on blue/ purple colourway is called 'shadow' range. It now appears the 'Studio' range was started before this date with most of the designs by glass artist Gwyneth Newland ( now Ashcroft ) the research continues and there may be an exhibition of Royal Brierley Studio glass at the motorcycle museum this coming November,thanks to Mr Benson, ;D ;D if I can get organised  :o ::) ;D

Dear All,

I thought it was time to potentially add to the RB Studio parade.  :D

I have a number of pieces and add to them when I can. This one I've not seen before hence thought I share it.

So here goes, unsigned, 10cm tall, unusual shape however the colourway is fab. My eyes say a light mauve through to a light lilac ( thinned out ) graduated from top to bottom with a good surface finish at the top again thinning out and minimising to the base. Same base and top finishes to my other pieces.

Happy days.

With kind regards

Andrew

Can now add a little more , it seems RB'y produced more than I thought, with thanks to David for putting me in touch with Charles Hajdamach who sent me images from a catalogue that shows they produced a dressing table set and a number of table lamps, seven new shapes in all and now have names for a number of pieces. Today I got a standard vase  that came with a box and small leaflet advertising the 'Samba' range ( see image ) of which this is one of 14 ! including a carafe, bowls, bud vases and wine glasses, it seems I have a way to go to get them all !  ::) ;D ;D

Keith, could you please tell me about the dressing table set mentioned above?  I would like to add details to GTS. Ta!

Will do Anne,
In response to Andrew's post I'm afraid your vase is Heron glass not RB'y, sorry,  ;D

Thanks as always.

With kind regards

8 inches tall with Royal Brierley Crystal label on the base, same dimensions as the studio version in this shape.

Same shape piece but smaller, in an oil spot effect... 4" tall, 3" wide at its widest point. How many sizes was this shape made in, do we know?

Marked on the base Royal Brierley Studio.

Found it today in my favourite rummaging shop (not a charity shop.)

Feel free to use the pics Keith. :)
