Now sold x
To effect an upgrade to the board's hardware the board and associated websites provided by Angela Bowey may be offline for a period of up to 4 hours from midnight GMT (7pm EDT) on Tuesday 30th September 2014.

If the board is offline when you visit please do not panic, it's a routine upgrade, and we should be back in action by Wednesday morning GMT / Tuesday midnight EDT.

If there are any delays experienced you will be able to find out the latest news and estimated time of the board's return to life, on my glass blog here: (on my blog as all Angela's sites will be down during the migration, of course!)

A diversion but this one is signed with an acid etched mark S-W and appears to be the same pattern as the example I linked to above.
It's not the same as yours I know,but thought I''d add it for comparison as it is marked on the pontil mark on the base.

Thanks M, I'll check through my other books, ;D ;D
Tin tin thank you for taking the time to reply and thank you for giving another maker to search.  It's always interesting to come across something new and have a name to search for information :)
It seems Belgium is the preferred option so far then.

And apologies Christine, my new email system isn't giving me alerts I can click into when there are new replies so I hadn't realised you'd posted links.  Thank you :)

 :-\ not sure now having seen the base.
Nothing the same nor anything I can see with ridges in my catalogue pages either (I don't have very many of them though).  Sorry.
I don't know whether the one I linked to is or is not S& W but also it's difficult to tell but it seems to perhaps have a pontil mark on it where yours doesn't.
I think I am remembering a ridged S&W vase though,in a darker green, more squat than your vase.
I'll try and see if I can find it.

Thanks David, with that info managed to find these in no time.


Nice photo of a floodlight:

Artificail daylight (I like the description):

Both references in the book look to be floodlights then, with hindsight especially the first "...four large Chance lights which (in those days) were situated round the perimeter...
