It occured to me that perhaps this vase was bought as a 'blank' and engraved somewhere else, which might explain (to my eyes) the conflict of engraving and vase.

I don't think the discrepancy is that great. Just for a comparison, here is a ZBS citrine vase with engraving:

Thanks Ivo.  The kingfisher just didn't 'feel' right to me, it still looks odd to me somehow, maybe it's the subject matter.  I bow to your greater experience of course as my opinion was only a gut-feel.    ;) :-*
