I think Stuart was a good shout jp, but since theirs was called Ebony and Gold, then presumably this isn't black enough.    By any chance did Davies take the design idea with him to the Blowzone Studio?

Well done your correct Jp it was made on the Isle of Man, but who made it?

Dont know Chris but i can give you a useless piece of information . Michael Harris invited Ray Annenberg (he of Whitefriars fame)to the Isle of man with the idea of Ray running the factory Ray and his wife Hazel went out there enjoyed it but could not take the chance of uprooting their then young family .

Yes Chris did you not read my last thread its all to do with Michael Harris he got it started , if you go to the next Cambridge fair i will get Ray to tell you all about it he spent some time with Michael and was reluctant not to take it on . Ray has some good memories of it to tell .

A lot of my little azurene style animals and coloured glass animals from the Isle of Man have that label Chris........if I had seen this thread earlier, I might have guessed sooner....but there you go, I was busy...as always. :usd:
I'd like to hear the anecdotes as well JP, please can you share them with us all???

Thanks John, of course I read your reply just thought they may have been more including St Johns and with nothing coming up on google and no input again from those in the 'know' thought maybe just another obscure studio.
Probably some info in my books,
Rosie presumed the animals were St Johns Crystal? and not Island Glass, is there are a connection maybe?

Chris :sun:
