a blown glass vase, in a wonderful bristol / cadmium blue type colour.  A trail of clear blue running through a speckled blue.  The base is ground with what i think is an etched name - Shaw.  possibly.  If you can see any different, or have any idea, would love to hear them.

Doesn't look familiar.

Someone might recognise the signature if it were a little more visible - try rubbing some talc into it.

William Shakespeare (I kid thee not!) is a vastly experienced Studio glass maker. The link is to a wonderful Guardian montage of him making Glass Xmas decorations.
