Could anyone help with identification of the writing on the base of this vase. It says PLUS (or PLOS) BM. It is acid etched in a stencil style.

Thanks in advance. Julie ( I'm sorry but I can't seem to put in a picture. The bowl is round and is light blue with shades of blue on two sides.)[/img]

You have reminded me Dale , Ray Annenberg and i were glass hunting a few years back near Henley on Thames we went into a rather upmarket Antique shop and there was a W/Fs Ruby celery handled jug marked as early Victorian wine jug ?175 Ray said very politely to the posh Geezer!!!! obviously the owner , sorry that's not Victorian the posh Geezer said "Oh yes it is I know my glass" in a very rude manner , Ray replied "I know my Feking glass I made it" and we left , several weeks later it was still for sale as Victorian . We had many great laughs at similar things over the  twenty or so years buying and selling together  . At one centre Ray advised a lady very politely about a piece of non W/Fs glass wrongly marked
the lady burst into tears and ordered us out telling us never to come back again and telling me how rude my friend was , Ray decided after that to keep shtum .
