 :) Thank-you for taking the time and effort to join to answer this query.
It's very kind of you indeed.
I'm sure the OP will see it.
Are you interested in glass yourself?
Do, please hang around and join in the chatter.  ;D

Thank you Anne! :-*

Pierre, your vase is lovely, I have never seen this particular model before apart from the drawings in the catalogue.
Reich made a whole range of cameo glass pieces in the 1930s.

Here are some more links to pressglas-korrespondenz, where you can see several vases similar to yours:

It is so easy to damage lampwork, I am surprised many survive so perfectly. Still some great quality work there, thx for posting.

British & Irish Glass / Re: Stuart Villiers Oleta ID please

Well I have had the opportunity to unpack them.  The auction was wrong about how many were in the lot.  They said 160.  I actually have 197!  All are marked with acid etching Stuart England.  I have written below what i think they are but all help and knowledge is most appreciated.  The sizes of some do not seem to match anything i have seen online.  I would be great to have a catalogue from the period (pre 1950) that shows what Stuart named them along with their sizes.  Thanks for any and all contributions.
Starting on the left:
Water Goblet??  21cm x 9cm
Beer Glass??  20cm x 7cm
Red Wine??  18.5cm x 7cm
White Wine??  16.5cm x 7.3cm
Champagne Flute??  15.3cm x 6cm
Sherry?? 13.5cm x 6.2cm
Cordial?? 12cm x 7cm
Liqueur?? 12.5cm x 4.3cm
In the foreground:
Large juice/water?? 11cm x 7.5cm
Small juice?? 9cm x 6.5cm
Glass Paperweights / Re: Your thoughts on what will appreciate in value?

Hello and welcome.  :)
My personal take on the "scene" is that I'm not remotely interested in values or money.
I just like lovely glass and I am interested in the artists who make it and their history, and this is what this forum is mainly about.
We do not really discuss values here, they're far too subjective.

 :) Could you try rubbing some talc over the marks to bring them up for the camera?
I really can't see anything much to even try to work anything out.  ;D
