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.

I don't think so, but your pictures are way too small; they don't blow up. Resize a high-res original so that the longest dimension is 700 pixels. You have 125kb per picture, not per post

Hello other Angel! :hi:
Your signature is upside down ( I think!) and may well say Mtarfa.
Have a look at a few Mtarfa pieces with signatures and see if you agree.

Thanks all! Another little glass problem solved! Much appreciate your help. Definitely Mtarfa. My pics are very poor but it has stunning iridescence to commend it.

Hi mods! Does this post need to be moved? The dish is definitely Mtarfa.
