No-one likes general adverts, and ours hadn't been updated for ages, so we're having a clear-out and a change round to make the new ones useful to you. These new adverts bring in a small amount to help pay for the board and keep it free for you to use, so please do use them whenever you can, Let our links help you find great books on glass or a new piece for your collection. Thank you for supporting the Board.

Having the right books is a great aid in identifying glass.

Signature for id please... Jim Munnelly??? or ?
« on: July 11, 2007, 03:39:29 PM »
I have bought a group of contemporary weights, with two St Clairs, this one and another  (which I have asked a question about separately)  -  It's a lovely piece, with a central silvery dome, and burgundy spatter outside that.  But I am not very good with signatures  :-[.  It looks like Munnelly, but I have tried that and lots of other possible permutations and I'm getting nowhere....

Does anyone recognise the weight or the signature?

About halfway down this page is a reference to a Jim Munnelly who was an ex-Whitefriars employee who then moved to Kingslyn and ended up at Mdina. The message board looks like it's some transition board because all the posts are by the site admin.

There's another ref to him in this page, by Sonya 22.

Think it's a possibility!

Well I've put a new thread on the WF forum, so hopefully someone will have more info.  The picture of the youngsters from WF is SO of its time, isn't it!!

Thank you very much!
