Can't imagine you wouldn't remember finding this one..............   perhaps not quite in the same league as the Mammoth Foot insulator, but still very striking - especially if done in uranium.
I have checked the Board's archive but am fairly certain we've not seen an example before.

this is possibly the last few I have for the time being - others may surface in due course, but it looks as though I have exhausted examples from the lozenge period - but if people do find some more please let me know. :)
The John Short Downing pen tray shown below is similar to another design form them which was posted a few days back, No. 290191 - one has a curved shape to the end whilst the other is a square ended tray.

Always good to see these things in the flesh, should anyone have an example to show. :)

Keith have you checked whether it is uranium or not?

That's extremely pretty and shows the decor is very similar to What ho's bowl posted on another thread.

I have discovered a vase that is enamelled and signed Webb Corbett that also uses this acid cameo background.
No idea how big it is though as despite it being thousands to buy, the seller hasn't listed the size  :-X

Anyway, it appears they used this background for at least one vase.

I have also found it used on another English makers piece dating to a similar period.
There 'might' be a connection between that other English maker and Webb Corbett.  I have evidence of a possible connection.

The handles of this little vase remind me of something the other maker has made.

Long shot - probably not either the other English maker nor Webb Corbett given the style but I've just added the information just in case.

Hi, could be mount ST Helens glass ?

Having been googling trying to find another example of this glass, I came across a few duck engraved glasses by Rowland Ward, where the design was very similar, particularly the duck itself, could this glass be by Rowland Ward or in the manner of?
