I'm very much with Anton on this. It isn't a known shape with that very long tail, but everything else about it screams IoWSG and it's perfectly possible it was an experiment.
Unless it's St John, which is sort of related.  :)

Glass / Re: Double Cobalt Cut to Uranium Marmalade Preserve on EPNS Holder for show
« Last post by flying free on September 18, 2018, 06:19:11 PM »
one more completely wild idea - the base reminds me of Webb Corbett paperweights and the shape, which was what first made WC come to mind, reminds me of my Webb Corbett agate flambe bowls.
So I'm adding that as one of those 'just in case it might be' thoughts.  However I have NO idea if they ever used double overlay cut through.

That said, as far as I know only S&W and VSL used uranium cut to colour - but then a little knowledge is limiting :)

Thanks m

I will check my CH book and see if anything similar.
I know VSL did very similar glass, will check out to see when they started marking that kind of glass. I know they were making it post 1900.

Thanks Roy
