Probably Alum Bay Glass, shape & colour is typical for them.

Hi Jebbon,

There's an almost identical one on ebay (230096513586) listed as Isle of Wight - and with the flame logo impressed into the pontil.  Might be worth comparing your pontil with the one shown in this listing..............

Regards
Cat

All I see on that item is a blobby pontil mark, no impressed flame. I'm sure Isle of Wight Studio glass were not responsible for it. Alum bay is on the Isle of Wight so confusion sometimes arises.

There's an article on Alum bay Glass here which shows some of these vases:

I have a gorgeous Alum Bay vase that's almost identical to this one in shape (mine is amber and is iridised, so there are differences!). I bought it in the Alum Bay Glass Studio's shop, in Alum Bay, so I can verify its origin.
