Can anyone help with this please, it looks to good to be 'homemade'
This little vase has been driving me nuts.
I assumed from the look it was briglin when I first picked it up. (next to a Briglin dish in pic)
Thought it said Bircle but could it be Birde?
I have done a rubbing and the surname is Johnston but can't work out the first name initial.
At a loss, any help much appreciated.

Bircle is a small village near Bury i.e. up your way, I assume. It's all up north.
