A Major Discovery - BOHEMIA meets CARNIVAL
« on: May 09, 2006, 06:50:01 PM »
Thanks to a recent, astonishing "find" by Della, it looks like we are going to be re-writing some sections of glass history again.

The condensed version of this fascinating discovery is this:- Della found a marigold water set that had a golden paper label attached to the pitcher. I investigated it, and was shocked and thrilled at what was emerging. Della has taken more photos and together we have the full story in a feature that you can see here:

Hats off to Della

Does Della get to name the design?

Yes Frank - she does - that's the convention. The choice of pattern name is entirely Della's.

Glen

ps I'll add a YESSSS to Della's comment that we were excited. Very, very excited. I'm still "high".
