Looks like M Andrews and Peter Layton. 

Can't recall if Martin Andrews worked at London Glassblowing with Peter Layton, however, could be a good place to start.  :)

Hi Fred  -  welcome to the GMB. :)          regret to say we don't provide values on this forum  -  appreciate you guys on the other side of the pond do so frequently, and as a matter of course, but this side we consider that ideas as to value are too variable and unreliable, and would suggest you look at auction sites to locate similar pieces with which to arrive at some indication of value.               The reason for this approach is that valuations are subject to much personal opinion and current fashion  -  we are not professional in the assessment of antiques, and our discussions are confined to intrinsic, and not monetary interest.

Hopefully someone here will be able to help perhaps regarding an attribution or provenance, but in the meantime a couple of questions.                Is the threading actually glass rather than created using enamelling.               Where the leaves are showing, has the threading been removed, or might it have been masked off in this area.
It's an attractive and unusual shaped vase  - was this an estate purchase from within the States?

hello Susan  -  from the lack of replies it might seem the answer is no  -  and regret to say I don't recognize them as anything specific, but that's a long way from being conclusive.
The question I always ask in response to this sort of post is 'what makes you suggest W/Fs in the first place  -  wishful thinking or is there some physical attribute that suggest that origin? :)
When you say ribbed, are you referring to some form of optic moulding - with my eyesight it's not clear from your pix ...........  photos of glass, where the subject is mostly clear, benefit from a uniformly dark background, and I suspect a good clear picture of the underside of the foot might also be helpful.
Gold amber was a W/Fs colour back a little prior to mid C20, but not so sure they made duo tone pieces like yours.          Let's hope one of the W/Fs experts looks in. 
British & Irish Glass / Royal Brierley Studio for show, again !
