wire wall hangers - eeeeeek - get rid!
Is there any damage from them?
The Mdina piece is post-Harris, but still an early, very good one which I collect myself.
Both orange and yellow are difficult
colours to use and work - they have a tendency to misbehave.
The design on this range is not
just plain old splodgy. There is the yellow spoldgy background, but the decoration has been produced by trailing a strapping of clear glass which has been decorated with orange spoldges, worked in then blown.
A lot more complex than plain splodgy!
My opinion, for which I have no proof, is that this range is likely to be an Eric Dobson design, and probably not produced after Joseph Said took charge.
This might contradict the book, which says that orange bodies did not appear until the late '70s, but - what Mark calls orange bodies, I call red. It's a completely different colour to these splodges anyway.
So dating it is difficult, but it is early, post-Harris. Much of this design was exported to Germany at the time of making. It's not a range that crops up frequently, and it is
a "superior" one.
