Earthtones does appear in several distinct " hands" or styles of execution - I only have two bits as good as that one, where the brown "painterly" ribbons are of a stained-glass sort of quality, with both red and brown streaks -and it looks as if its made of agate.
Another style, also glorious, is one we have attributed to Vicente Boffo, because it appears in Malta Decorative Glass pieces - and it's absolutley utterly distinctive.
Pics later - I've got a long difficult (but hopefully very constructive and successful) day ahead of me!
John, do you have pics of the fabby yellow Boffo cylinder (footed but unmarked) you recently gave me?
It's not on display yet. It's in my back "smoker's room", where I can study it close up and dribble over it several times a day, before finding a shelf space for it!
I don't think we're really arguing, John - between us we manage to cover and state all caveats and doubts. It's constructive and airing all possibilites and differing opinions.
That's how proper research is done. :thup:
