Venetian Glass Factory, Blackpool - Franco Toffolo

(1/1)

*opal**:
Hi, I'm new and stumbled here looking for the Venetian Glass factory in Blackpool, or at least that's what I think I am looking for.
In the mid seventy's my mum bought a lovely big glass bull from what was at the time no more than a barn with a furnnice in it.
I think she also bought a couple of harlequin figer's as well  but I have the bull and would like to know more about it and if I can get more like it? :?

Frank:
Hi,

Your description of the 'works' is not untypical of a glass studio in the UK at that time. Is the name you give from memory or a label/signature?

Can you post a picture, see instructions in sticky topic.

see entry under Glasform. I think there was a glass company in Blackpool called Venetian Glass Co but John Ditchfield would be the person who could answer this

Frank:
Franco Toffolo, mispelt on Great Glass, is now working with John Deacons in Crieff, Scotland.
