Many thanks for your help, its one of those "?" items, which you think they might be something but on reflection or further reading are not ( if you know what I mean)
The trouble is when I first started to become interested in glass in the early 1990's, I bought anything and everything, and believed what ever I was told when buying it too. It was only when I invested in some books that I realised that the mistakes I had made.
As I had bought what I liked at the time it didn't matter,its only now when I want to pass some of them onto new homes that the subject of maker becomes more pressing. I don't want to miss-describe something or use the "generic" Murano etc, even though sometimes it is inavoidable.
Emptying the loft has been a bitter sweet jouney down memory lane, as some items were given by relatives and friends who are no longer here, and reminiscing about days out and holidays and who bought what, and sometimes, why they bought it! But the loft is now tidy, and the most precious memories have been tidied away until next time. Just got to sort the old shed out now :shock:
