Thanks Rocco (I never saw a piece of Ingrid that was signed before, so I'll be keeping this image archived for future reference)

Hi again,just taken some more photos of the vase while in the UK.I am still unsure if it is iridised,quite hard to tell with the blue.What i can tell you that it changes to a dark purple colour in a dimmer light.Also can anyone advise on the colourway of this,cannot seem to find it on the Ysart Glass site.Hopefully not too many photos posted.
Thanks Paul.
Glass / Re: Pink Holmegaard glass?

Hi Paul, thank you for your comments. I agree, it's very similar to the pallet vase, but not the same. When you say 'worth a look', could you direct me somewhere to research further?
Thanks again :)
Glass / ID Large vase

Can anyone help me with identifying this vase bought recently at auction. My first thoughts that it may be a prewar Whitefriars.
 It stands 9ins high and has polished pontil. Any ideas?

hi   -  cased opaque pieces are not uncommon from Holmegaard, along with many of the Scandi houses - the more well known Holmegaard pieces are probably the gulvases, but I can't see that this factory used pink - but who knows.              Shape wise this piece isn't too dissimilar to Holmegaard's pallet vase - a sort of decanter shape - although not sure they made them this small.           Could be worth a look though.

hi  -  always satisfying to have a result.               I've not seen or heard of this one as a Wedgwood mark, and would be useful for the Board's archive if we had perhaps a commencement date to link with the mark, and if it was applied to a limited range of their products, or if it was used generally.
Approximate dates are known for other related backstamps for Wedgwood - the early trade mark for King's Lynn Glass and the later Portland Vase for Wedgwood - plus the variations on the use of the Company name etc., and the very early RS-W for Stennett-Willson.
For whatever reason  -  health & safety or simply practical issues - it seems that Wedgwood used sandblasting only to create their backstamp, as opposed to acid like most other manufacturers.           Most of the time it's possible to see the difference between the two methods of marking, which can be a pointer to an id.
Perhaps your friend can point us to a book, or particular piece from Wedgwood and would be really good to have a date - thanks :)
