Thank you, Paul, but you've already supplied the design representation for Henry Greener's RD 322393.

Henry Greener  pieces with the 'fans and fan roundels' pattern that Roy shows in the previous post seem always to be marked with their 1st lion trademark (used between 1875 and 1885), irrespective of the shape (bowl, dish,, pitchers,  creamer, celery vase, comport) or the colour (clear, dark cobalt or marbled).

The only piece that I have photos of in the 'fans and fan roundels'  pattern that bears a lozenge registry mark in addition to the 1st lion trademark is a circular dish in clear glass  - but the lozenge here is for 8 June 1878- Parcel 11 (corresponding to RD 322393, which should be for a completely different Henry Greener pattern - based on a stylised lanceolate leaf design). Also, in this particular case, the centre  motif to the dish is a fan roundel (as might be expected) in contrast to the looped strapwork design on Roy's dish.

So, yet more cases of Henry Greener pieces with 'odd', 'inappropriate' or 'abberant' lozenges.

I think it needs more research to determine the likely maker based on the shape of this vase, not just the decor.

Although the decor appears to be identical to that shown in the "Rindskopf Pepita" page in the "Kralik-Glass" site linked to earlier, Craig (website owner) has stated that "Pepita" is, in his view, no longer a "marker" decor for production at Rindskopf.

So, without a direct match to the shape, can we be sure of a maker? Or am I missing that shape in Craig's pages?

This bowl is registered to Angus Greener 26th June 1867, it has the same central pattern but does not have the linking rings.

It also shows that items were made for many years after the design registration as it also has the 1st Greener lion trade mark just below the date lozenge which must mean the bowl was not made before 1875.

Some of those pieces have patterns that are very much in a similar design theme to your 'boule de escalier'
