BOFFO............

Patrick Hogan:
Hi, On Thursday 8th September I visited the Museum of London and was able to take pictures of the workbooks of Vincente Boffo.......... He worked as a glassblower at Whitefriars in the early 60,s.  One of the pieces he designed and made was a 6 inch high Penguin......... http://tinypic.com/dmtnuo.jpg         These appeared in the company catalogue in various colours.
 After my visit I asked the question on the Forum of  Whitefriars.com ........ http://www.whitefriars.com/bb/viewtopic.php?t=341
 What was the total number that he made?  I have now closed the competition but will not give the answer until 19.00 hrs. on Monday. Perhaps members of this forum would care to hazard a guess.................. No prize but you may have the honour of being the nearest. You can answer on here or on......    Best wishes and good luck.  Patrick Hogan.

I think it might be 720, but if my guessing this is anything like the numbers I pick for the lottery, then I am wayyyyyyyyyyyyyy out :wink:
