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.

cant make out signature cane properly , to start with it looked like a P and something else so thought maybe peter holmes but then it looks like an A too depending way you look at it so thought it might be allan scott also looked through both Perthshire paperweights books to see if I could find similar , the bowl has nice vertical faceting around the outside with lampwork flower

There is one here with a sticker on the base saying Barleylands Glassworks...  ( it's visible in image no. 8 of 8 )

Nice vase Anne. I wondered if Lutken or Copier may be possible? An unusual shade of green, the base finish suggests top quality. I wondered if the base wear may hide a small acid etch mark or engraved initials....

I've merged the new topic with the original one and dragged them back into Glass from Unresolved for you Anne.

Thanks Sue & Greg , I didn't know Strathearn did this shape ! I assumed too much ! One clue is that the button type of pontil mark isn't highly polished ...it's slightly dulled and you can see parallel lines of polishing marks . It has lots of age related scratching to the base though .
