Matching a pattern to the product

I'd thought that the vase illustrated was Stevens and Williams, and just possibly designed by the young Frederick CARDER - but that was until I came across pattern 15535 in the Webb Archive. The colours are different - the pattern book specifies a"Blue Shaded body, flint stems, Ivory flowers, topaz prunts"

Visit to the Glass Fair 14th November 2010

Another worthwhile visit to the Glass Fair.  I'd gone with very specific aims - I'm trying to limit my collecting, but like many collectors I cannot resist interesting things that don't really go with the rest of the stuff I've acquired, and this time was no exception - an odd glass ?rummer ?firing glass - in a brownish-yellow Uranium metal.  Glows under UV.  It looks early 19th century, and I think it's British, so it must be one of the earlier pieces to be made in Uranium glass.  I'll post a picture when I get the chance.
