New find - John Airlie bowl
« on: January 07, 2013, 03:25:50 PM »
Found in a charity shop, a bowl very much in the Scandinavian style, signed Airlie 1972 KGC. 7 inches across, 6.5 inches wide in thick pale green colour, doesn't appear neodymium.

Thanks Adam

Presumably the KGC is Kirkhill Glass C..., anyone know what the C would be?

C for company. Signature all in caps because Dad's arms were damaged by then and so capitals were easier to write.
