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.

Lamp base - ID = STRATHEARN
« on: June 25, 2009, 11:34:14 AM »
This lamp base was sold to me as being "Murano" but I have doubts.  My OH says 'Chinese', and I'm beginning to wonder ::).  What does anyone think please?  It has a smattering of gold foil.  It doesn't appear to be newish as there is wear on the base, and I was informed that the wiring had been recently renewed.  Can't help thinking TKMax...
Your thoughts would be much appreciated.

Not very Strathearn to me but they did do some out of character pieces... so not impossible, just unlikely.

There you go  :hiclp:

They will be right... now I need photos for Scotland's Glass of course. No rush as I am dashing around with my begging bowl so I can get the site upgraded.
