Thank you for the lead for IDing 'my' Mystery #126 set, Angela.

As you say, the lidded pot is indeed pattern 570 on page 28, and the candlesticks are pattern 350 on page 22, but I can't find a match for the tray yet - could easily be a mismatch I suppose, especially as all the pieces are in clear glass.

I will add ID notes to the comments section on the Mystery #126 section of Anne's GTS site shortly.

Fred.

I'll get right in the end, pontil mark certainly sounds better than " the bit in the middle" !
Leerdam pontil marks do seem smaller than this one.

well, I was going to say cherries, but I'm a reformed character now ;)   -  and agree there's a limit to how much glass you can keep.
I think it's not only the question of which original shape for 'Stratford', but also which of the Nos. it was.            Hopefully, we should know by the end of the week.

Just for clarification, the pontil mark is the polished out concave circle; the outside of the piece is smooth from blowing, not from polishing.

If you have the time Rosie there is some fabulous glass in that auction, I spent half an hour last night just clicking through the lots. Some fantastic animals dotted throughout too.

Myths are easily perpetuated, especially with the help of 'tinternet. In many situations it is probably much easier to start a myth than spend time and effort researching. Then there is the propensity for us hairless chimps to believe a well told story....

Hi--most of the stand ring is as finely polished as the main body of the vase, it's inner circle however has an almost mat finish as a result of usage.
The concave inner bit is polished, with no sign of any pontil mark.
I apologise for the quality of my photos.
I have to say Sweden crossed my mind, as did China.

I hope I am correct in my thinking it is Incalmo... I am doing some further research and will report back. :)
