Can anyone help a novice glass collector with identifying the latest acqisition, please? If I give you my train of thought on the matter (don't laugh!!) perhaps I'll be guided by more knowledgable people to a better understanding of the process. One can only hope.........
I bought this because I liked it (most important) and because it only cost £1.00 (another good reason!)
When I saw it I thought of Mtarfa glass and also of Franco Toffolo though closer examination madse my thoughts of Toffolo recede. Obviously, as a fall back I had to consider that it may well be Murano, though I thought the design somewhat unlike the Murano I have seen. There is an air of Monart/Vasart about it - even though I know it is definitely not that as I have a small collection of Scottish Glass. Nevertheless it reminded me of that which is why Toffolo came to mind. Are these the ramblings of an idiot or am I somewhere on the glass planet? Your contributions will be highly valued and appreciated. (Oops! Almost forgot to tell you that it is 7 and 1/2 inches in height.)
