quote from Lustrousstone on 21st August................."Good thought. I'll give it a go"
..........and what was their response Christine??
Reference Nigel's reply - and I quote from Paul S. yesterday............."although in line with the book's title, there is obviously no coverage of Waterford patterns/designs"..........which I had assumed did explain clearly that I was acknowledging that Republic of Ireland material wouldn't be shown in Hajdamach's book (in view of the title). Ironically, although the title of Elville's book includes the word British, he does deviate a little across the Irish Sea
As for the other authors mentioned, their book titles did not have excluded Eire automatically, although they chose to concentrate a lot on Scandinavia (at that time obviously the darling of the contempary glass fashion world). As I have commented, these are all very good books, and I wouldn't be without any of them.
I apologize for the error of overlooking the list of 'Designers and Manufacturers' in Stennett-Willson's book - obviously I was rushing
However, I would question the suggestion that it is an index in the proper sense (I'm trying to wriggle out of this one
) - and finally, my thanks for reconfirming Franks suggestion that my vase is 1960's vintage. When I first saw this piece I immediately thought 'Queensbury' - it did seem so like a piece of Webb Corbett initially. However, glad to have been put right.
