It can be distinctly coppery in colour, as in these goblets.

...   just a small correction:  It is simply Webb Corbett (no &)

David in 1952 Thomas Webb & Corbett Ltd changed name to Webb Corbett Ltd.   So anything wholly and definitely pre-1952, like the subject of this topic, should always be Webb & Corbett.   Anything that is both before and after, after the change of name, or when you are unsure should usually be Webb Corbett.   The context will help determine which is appropriate.   So I disagree with you.   Note that I was particularly careful to get it correct when starting this topic attempting to set a good example.

would agree with the comments re the size of some of these pieces........... was looking yesterday at what was probably an HF shouldered vase in stunning blue - c. 25 cms. tall.         Together with the sunlight and the shape they do look large and very impressive.
I see this morning it had disappeared - so presumably sold.

As we are always looking for the ultimate in pix, then one thing that would have improved the catalogue would have been to increase the image size - some of the smaller items do require a little more magnification.............  but then if you had been viewing in person this would have been unnecessary. :) 
Thanks Lustrousstone it is good to know.

Thanks, Christine!
You are right -- I am sure Alfredo knows what he is talking about.

I was rather trying to express my surprise to find an ID I really hadn't expected ;)

Once you know what you are looking for: >> Link 1, >> Link 2
two more, both of them seem to have the rectangular mark.

The Czechoslovakia puts between 1918 and 1993
