Sorry, in a mad rush this morning. Here's a pic of the whole piece. Will drop back in after work.

Okay  ;D Thanks everyone for your suggestions.  It's really hard to say if this is damage or 'straw' marks. They are so narrow, that I can't get my nail in to see if they are rounded. Just noticed the other side also has these marks in the exact same position (left side high, right side low) but are more noticeable on the underneath of the handle. I have one of these in amber and there aren't any marks on that one, so maybe it is to do with the milk glass.

Anyway, thanks again :D I don't know what I'd do without you all :)
Cheers,
Lyn

That's a Davidson basket, I have its cousin here in canary vaseline glass with a Rd No in the base. No cracks or marks on my handles, although there is a hairline :'( through the base. No 176566

I am pretty sure that L G Wright and/or Fenton are in the mix - this twig handled basket was reproduced in the USA. I have a red example of this piece.

There is only one shear mark on any item, the little separations on the handles are not shear marks.

In "Fenton the 3rd 25 years" by Heacock, on page 88 there is a photo of my red basket (actually Fenton called the colour OR which I believe was orange: it's selenium red that is not fully "struck" and so shades red to yellow - carnival collectors call that colour "amberina" but I know that is not the "purists" view of amberina). It is Fenton's 1939 oval English basket (yes, a plagiarised version of the Davidson pattern) and was made in the "orange"  1967-1969. Fenton were making milk glass then too, so very likely the piece in question was from around that era (which was also prior to Fenton trade marking all their glass).

Very plagiarised! You're so much better at this than me Glen. I'd have to see them together to tell the difference, or did Davidson not make milk glass

My piece (as usual ::)) has no marking what so ever.  Would love to see other's photo's of their baskets though :D
That's three possible makers :lol:, seems we might never find out who made this piece :-\
Cheers,

I am not sure if LG Wright made it - if they did it was most likely for Fenton. I do know for certain that Davidson and Fenton made it.

Sorry for brevity

OOoh, yes. Isn't it yummy! I've just found we've also got a clear glass one with the moulded RD.

I was talking to Steve about this today and he said he thought that he remembered Frank Fenton saying that the "oval English basket" was a mould they acquired.
