Thanks Ekimp appreciate your message i think that i have had a few pieces in the past that have really gotten my juices flowing that were engraved
sadly one was a perfume bottle that i later found out to have been a Webb Or Stevens ROCK CRYSTAL piece years past till i realized what a mistake i had made.
The piece only made a few tens or pounds as well so gutted but like these i am still using the cheap camera i have had for years i must get a better one :) i have tried to show some better detail for you in the pictures below to see what you make of them baring in mind this camera does not show much definition .
Best piece i had was a Val St Lambert green deco vase by Joseph Simon it was heavy and had perfect sort of symmetry not finely cut but a beauty:)

 ;D It's a beautiful blue, it's iridescent. It's a little spot of joy, peace and calm. You didn't have this colour.
That's not un-exciting.  8)

Here is the salt from that set.
This is an old thread but I thought I'd add a link to my post on a Tutbury glass bowl.,73238.0.html

Eugénie, that's a super set and labelled too. What a fabulous find! I'll add the pics to the GTS website asap, thank you.  I don't have Gebr. Feix on the site yet due to the scarcity of information gathered so far but can create a new section now we have this to show. :)

No problem.
Actually the green parts are very dark, the pattern inside the glass is barely visible without a strong light source. I had to use a flashlight in order for it to be visible. Also barely transparent.
The glass itself is thick, and heavy.
The whole inside is white, but I don't see distinctive layers similar to common cased glass.

Hi, I don’t know who made your vase but they used Wilkinson’s technique for the “bones”, described here:,69040.msg384526.html#msg384526

Sorry, i think i forgot to add, that the "bones" are on the surface, but i think they are not enamel or paint, but small pieces of colorful glass molded into the main body. I think this technique is called "murrine".
