No-one likes general adverts, and ours hadn't been updated for ages, so we're having a clear-out and a change round to make the new ones useful to you. These new adverts bring in a small amount to help pay for the board and keep it free for you to use, so please do use them whenever you can, Let our links help you find great books on glass or a new piece for your collection. Thank you for supporting the Board.

Having the right books is a great aid in identifying glass.
To help you find the most useful books we have put together "book-seek.com"

light teal mould blown 10"high with a rather pronounced  seventies look - I haven't got a clue but I'm sure one of you will know.

Wow - same mould. Ekenäs, perhaps? Or Empoli?

Here's the shed in question.   Glass goes there to die, it's very sad...  :cry:  :cry:  It's also chock full of Chance glass too, I blame David Encill.   :P  :P  


Well, I get blamed for everything else... :cry:

Actually, Max, I never had any Chance until you bought the subject up with your groovy pyschadelic dish! :twisted:

Where can I buy a shed like yours Max? :mrgreen:  :roll:  :lol:

Yay! - shed problem solved Max! :lol:
Just bought this, this morning - a larger version of yours by the looks of it.  I think it is probably made by the same maker as the basket weave panel vase (see pic) - most likely from Empoli, Florence (discussed in another thread).  The colour is the same, and the base, allowing for design differences, looks similar.  Very 60s looking aren't they 8)   I'll have another search around to see if I can find out anything more about these.

Die Erfahrung lehrt, dass, wer auf irgendeinem Gebiet zu sammeln anfängt, eine Wandlung in seiner Seele anheben spürt. Er wird ein freudiger Mensch, den eine tiefere Teilnahme erfüllt, und ein offeneres Verständnis für die Dinge dieser Welt bewegt seine Seele.
Experience teaches that anyone who begins to collect in any field can feel a change in his soul. He becomes a joyful man filled with a deeper empathy, and a more open understanding moves his soul.
Alfred Lichtwark (1852-1914)
