In Marion Quintin-Baxendale Carnival Book, Copyright 1988, pg. 49, these are known as Egg & Dart. They have a double use as a candleholder or turned upsidedown as a fruit dish.

Hi Michael,thanks for the info. I have sold these in the past, as Sundae dishes and candlesticks. In fact I photographed it upside down to include here but on reflection the base when it is turned over is not very wide. Normally on sundae dishes the base is almost as wide as the top to support it when you are digging the spoon in. So I thought perhaps it was just overactive imagination to think it could have both uses. The Egg and Dart name does ring a bell now but do we know who produced it? The pattern is so similar to My ladys Powder bowl but the iridescence is very wishywashy and reminds me of that produced by Canning Town Glass.
