Hi - I have this irridescent blob really which is signed and dated 1999 - but thats all I can tell.

I've had it in my collection for a few years since buying @ a bootsale, but I would be intrested in who made this nice blob.

Any help would be greatfully received.

Thanks Carol

hello Rose.........just thinking outloud really, but if in fact something was made in what we call Hungary, might it not however say Magyar instead. :), or is this me just trying to be too clever.?    -     from my teenage years of philately I seem to remember that was the word shown on their stamps.

Lanmara?
I've searched here and found several references to this Scottish glassmaker, but all the links and images seem to have gone.

This is the only active thing I can find on them - found in Frank's Scotland's Glass site.

http://www.macgillivrays.co.uk/lanmara.html

Sadly, I can find no mention of them at all in "Scotland's Glass; 400 years of Glassmaking" by Shiona Airlie and Brian Blench, just recently published by Cortex Design. :'(

You've obviously got contacts in cyberspace, Anne! I found those - except for that informative and useful first one!
Names of the glassmakers found!  :rah:

Nothing in the new Hajdamch either, under Lanmara, Brown or Dearness.

I know we are a little way on in this now,  but I put in a bid and just lost out to this piece of glass :

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&_trksid=p4340.l2557&item=230738578393 

I thought it looked familiar as I have a little orange iridescent cat I bought for a couple of quid ages ago, and could find nothing about the signature on it....in truth, I don't even think it said it was signed in the listing,  I just liked the look of it, and I collect cats (glass ones!).

Anyway I had another look at mine and realised it said Lanmara 2002, so I am pleased to have an identity for mine, and will try to put a picture up of it.

So thank you Anne and Sue,  now I know who made my orange cat,  even though I didn't get the black one. :cry:
