My Amazing Glass Day...Ever, Just need a little help now
« on: August 20, 2008, 03:20:08 AM »
Went and bought all these on the same day, most I think are Dartington, if someone could confirm this, it would be great. I also bought a small heart shaped ashtray, when you look at it from an angle it is green, when you look at it above it is pink, looking from the side there is also some blue for £1 it is the most interesting piece I have bought because it changes with whatever way you look at it. Any comments welcome

I think the first one is Finnish, by Humppilan Lasi.  There is another threat of discussion about these pieces and according to Ivo these plates were designed by Kaija Aarikka.

The second bowl (the spiky one) is definitely Dartington.

By the way, on a separate note, it's preferable if you post your items in individual threads in future - it's easier to keep track of what's being said and about what  ;)

so frustrating, I was only looking at the square 1 (1 from top) the other day. Now, you know whats coming next ?
sorry I haven't a clue where, I search through umpteen catalogs and archives everyday.
but, definitely Scandinavian, I think Swedish and its a candle holder,
 I couldn't work out how either, but I'm fairly sure thats what it said.

The square one holds a tealight, but that's not it's purpose. It's for keeping your teapot warm - it's tea a warmer, hence the phrase tealight. Do a search on the board for tea warmer. It's possibly German

Anita Harris before Poole and Cobridge. In !983 when she won a busary so was presumably starting out
