After checking all the usual sources, our members can find no record of a Mr Rudy Grey, deceased at Alnwick on July 4, 1906 (the mystery engraved glass for sale on April 5, at Alnwick Auction, mentioned in the Gazette).

Our best guess is that he probably had four legs; but the auctioneer need not despair as that probably raises the value in many eyes.
