thanks Dave yup its defo an Allan Scott bowl someone on other site posted pics of their Scott weight which like yours the lampwork was same or very similar to mines with exact same centre to flower, mines doesn't have a J cane so not sure if it would be j glass or just allans own work
DoH!  :-[ Well spotted Greg.
The only Pumice I've ever seen was green.
The white liner said no to Strathearn, and it's actually a finer texture than Granite, isn't it.
My excuse is that there is not much Pumice around, we just don't see it.

Strathearn "buttons" are large, flat and clear and tend to have a leaping salmon on them. I didn't see the button. My brother would have put me right, but you got there first, Greg, Thanks! :-*

I'm no good at dates, :-[ but around the 1930s at a guess?
It should be in the information in Scotland's Glass, the site where John found the catalogue image for you.
This is the story of Monart, the link is from the Scotland's Glass site.

It looks like it could be a John Deacons J Glass piece - is that a J signature cane also the A cane for Allan Scott who was the lampworker at J Glass and put his signature cane in some of their weights. Here is a J Glass Rose weight with Allan's A cane to compare
Glass / Identifying a triangular Murano
« Last post by Nono on Today at 08:47:43 AM »
I'd really like to identify this triangular label.  With a magnifying glass I can read the word MURANO across the bottom (the M is missing) but I would like to find the maker's name.  Can anyone help please?

Many thanks Anne ;)
Thanks for the suggestions Robert.  I'll follow those up.
Of all the glass I have, this piece stands out for its sheer quality.  I've asked several people over the years if they can see any marks/initials, but there is so much wear that if there are any, then they are obscured. I'll ask again.  A new pair of eyes might see something... 8)

Hi Sue,thank you for that.I skyped my Mum and she was really pleased.I then showed her another one that i found and she is booking her holiday to the Seychelles
Still would like to know roughly when these vases were made.
Thanks again for taking the time to view and give some info.
Found something very similar in the 1895 Montgomery Ward catalog.  Vessel form is very slightly different, namely the neck area.
