The 4 mark was from the use of a gadget. More often found on Strathearn I doubt any of the Ysart's used it at Moncrieff. Hollister could well have had Strathearn pieces without knowing it, probably a list of his collection in Rakow or sale auction could potentially verify that.

Page 20 and 21 of YSART GLASS book mentions the use of a 4 pronged punty iron (by Paul Ysart) on applied footed pieces and on bowls.
I would say Chris has the same amount of provenance as other pieces that have been previously posted as being by Boffo and seemingly accepted as being so.

I can think of a duck and a fish off the top of my head. This piece is very similar both in material and construction.

Why would you think it wasn't by him?

I think the market will decide.
this is 7 1/4 inches high , has a large polished pontil on the base, and a collar not like i have seen on google fishbowl type bowls previously, i have had s&w and webb suggested but with no markings it's difficult to guess right, any suggestions?  or could this also be keith murray  ??? thanks
Your fish has a clear outer casing, which implies the inner colour is applied. This fish has a bluish outer often seen on Mdina vases, i.e., clear glass made with poor quality sand and not decolorised. You can see it on this bottle

I found some info on Strathearn P9 minatures and they have a wide range from 1,3" to 2,0", so i think it is a minature rather than another size up.

There are some Rpyal Copenhagen patterns on replacements, I am sorry, but I am in a rush, otherwise I would look through them to see if there is a match to your glasses, but here is the link anyway.

im sure Keith will be able to put his hands on his monart with the four pronged pontil mark as his is mostly all on display and not packed away, I have seen a few pieces of monart with the four mark pontil over the years
