thank you Sue  :sun:  I shall remember your invite.  I've never been to Dundee, I've done Aberdeen, Perth, Glasgow and Edinburgh all with clients up there, but never Dundee.

for Sergio /Glas Vasen  - re signature on your vase

the signature on your piece looks a lot like this one I have - which is from a piece of Shetland Glass made by Chris Rouse who used to work for IOW glass.

perhaps you can compare the signatures more closely. if you want a better quality photo please email me using the link at the side of my post.

hope I am not just confusing the trail further......

Spent yesterday afternoon dusting my bedroom glass displays ;D  This is the 'worst' one - now spotlessly clean (and unlikely to be touched again for some time! ::) ) I even washed and dried each one of the 16 paperweights! :thud:  

The theme is 'Green, Green, Vaseline'   :24:

Well, I have been putting it off for months!  :pb:  It's a major operation, which involves climbing on a stool (it's a high chest) and moving things with great care because everything is so crowded  :-[  ::)

No, it's a very heavy plaster job (which I hope is securely fastened to the wall! :X:  :-\ ) I painted it to match the colour scheme of the room. 

I had to finally get on with the dusting because my little guide-son (aged 7) told me when he came to visit at half-term, "These paperweights need cleaning!" (in his most imperious voice!  :24: )

Having seen pictures of him, I can just see him standing there hands on hips!  ;D

 :sun: What a beautiful landscape you've created there, Leni!  :sun:

Jackie - I agree, Glas Vasen's piece could also be Shetland Glass, the signature looks very similar!

Glas Vasen - do not get concerned about wondering if your lovely piece and my bit might be by the same maker!

  :rah: Both Chris Lucas and Chris Rouse spent time training at IoWSG!  :rah:

;) He actually did that wipe-with-your-finger-and-then-look-at-it-in-disgust thing!  :24: :24: :24:

Steph:  I too have really enjoyed / am really enjoying :D this thread!  Such a lovely change from "What's this?", "It's ****", "Thanks" (or sometimes not-even-Thanks!  :-X;D   

Of course the 'What is it?' element is a big part of what this board is all about, but IMHO it's not the only part, and I'm very pleased this 'show-and-tell' thread has been allowed to remain here and not banished to the cafe   :thup:
