Hi Mike, I bought them, don't expect to make anything on them after the postage costs but at least they have come 'home' and should be a bit more accessible. I am a big fan off his work as you know but being a cold hearted dealer who never gets too attached I will probably move them on.

Really pleased you bought them Chris ! I wouldn't have known that they were MDG if I hadn't read all of Sue's posts on the subject. So it has been a team effort (Sue and you ) to get them 'home' :D

It's an interesting and amusing story from Ken about the market for Mdina glass in the States !

A lot of early Mdina was exported to the States.
However, there is so much fabulous (and early) studio glass over there, I can't really imagine that the "contributions" to the Studio Glass Movement from Europe would grab too much interest.
Cheers, Sue (M)

It's all to do with patriotic nostalgia  :)

If ever I get over to the States I will be heading for the nearest antiques emporium !

 The 2 pieces finally arrived today.
Will put some photos in my album when the sun gets out.
