the stamped mark is interesting isn't it?  I wonder what period it dates to, to be handpainted and to have a stamped mark (retailer mark maybe?)
There is reference in the Harrach book to orders from Harrach for specific companies, but none are 'W & H' that I can see.  I wonder who they were? maybe a retailer in the Midlands perhaps?
Walker and Hall is the only company I can think of and they were/are silver/goldsmiths in Sheffield - however the ampersand isn't designed in the same way as their hallmark (although there may have been earlier versions than I've found) and I'd have thought it may have been if it were for them.

So still no confirmation that the 'Rainbow' range is an official pattern name?  (this is in reference to another thread about the use of the name arabesque and arboresque).

It looks as though it might have been a design for a plant pot maybe? or might it have had a lid sat in it?
and I'm thinking East Germany? or Belgium perhaps but no idea why and probably completely wrong  ;D

Dear JP,

all's fine. I started collecting Baxter's Tangerine pieces 15 years ago and I don't think there are many I do not have, of course  not this pattern  :) ... thought you might like this one in a bud vase.

I have a member of my family with Macular degeneration so do empathise.

All the best.

I think it reads Vincenzi Murano Italy
Not sure about the rest though.
Not sure if that helps id where it's come from either though.

Sorry Andrew glad to be wrong i am waiting for cataract ops so should have kept quiet
i do know a bit about Whitefriars as i was in partnership with Ray Annenberg buying and selling glass for about 20 years and  spend many Sunday liquid  lunches with the few Whitefriars workers still standing , looks like you have a nice collection , i collect mostly Powell now due to lack of space

Thanks again Steven. I'd found that link after your initial post. Thankfully my piece cost ten pounds in a charity shop but I can see from some of the images the article and Desna catalogue show, how people could think they were buying an original art deco piece, .

May be way of the mark, look up glass smoothers. Wuff's example seems to be a modern version of these items. (maybe).
