Welcome to the board!
I think your bowl is by Anthony Stern - I posted a thread asking for identification of a couple of pieces of the same design, one, a bottle/vase on eBay in a lovely blue colour, (which, not knowing what it was, stupidly did not bid on it) and a plate that I have in greyish reds and white. Both of these pieces have what looks like the same signature, but until you know what it is, it's very difficult to make out. The one on eBay was listed as Mdina and the one I have was also originally listed as Mdina. Presumably more than one somebody though that that was what was written on it! :lol: Trudy, your bowl looks as if it is quite large - how big is it?
Here is a link to the thread I originally posted:-http://www.glassmessages.com/index.php/topic,1517.0.html
On this thread, I don't think I asked for an age, but I'd also really like to know roughly how old my plate might be.
, pretty please, with your special insider knowledge, would you be able to find out for us?
