Well found, Anne, thanks for updating this. I'll move it into the France forum now. :)

Julie I was going to say Parad but see you have already covered that.
I wonder if the quality of Parad varied over the output on some items ... i.e. some are beautifully and highly decorated and other perhaps not quite so?

I don't think so Anne, best to delete the post I think.

I continue to see cobalt blue glass items decorated with white dots and I really find them attractive, some more so than others. Any advance on Bohemian/Czech? (thanks for that info)

Any name for this type, style of decoration?

I think some of these seem undervalued. The tray seems high quality, polished rim and base.

Fair point, i'm not to sure on any other makers that wouldn't have signed a piece like this, only other makers with similar looking pieces are Quezal, Lundberg???

Thank you so much for that, I'll be doing some digging on the net tonight and you've now given me a good starting point. More than that, you've bolstered my waning confidence as my partner thinks the vase is just a piece of tasteless tat lol  :D

Unlikely to be O&F as they were good at marking their items.

Just came across this and remembered I'd seen it somewhere, the add's in Dutch but it mentions they're marked La Rochere France. They're bowls for ice cream/sorbets/ sundaes etc...

Hi - it looks as though it might be a Lars Hellsten design for Skruf, Sweden, but worth checking ;)
Very nice.
