No-one likes general adverts, and ours hadn't been updated for ages, so we're having a clear-out and a change round to make the new ones useful to you. These new adverts bring in a small amount to help pay for the board and keep it free for you to use, so please do use them whenever you can, Let our links help you find great books on glass or a new piece for your collection.

This not tittot or luili, they are moulded, much more likely to be Chinese or Murano I think.
Something you like, mail me! :)

Yes, Wolfie, I've had both and I know it isn't either, though it feels lovely  ;D
If I know, I'll comment. If I think I know, I'll have a go. If I have no idea, I'll just keep quiet and learn from others, so the next time I'll know.

YES designed by a China-man but made in Malta at the MDG factory.

It was from the early produced work and is remembered by an ex worker.

So lucky to find it on Ebay when I was searching 'Birds'

Cheers,

Patrick

And I'm so happy he went to a great home.
Many thanks, Patrick  ;D

Mystery solved and as you say, Della,  it went to a good home.
Now we just have to look out for some others!! :)

I think finding another might be hard........

Another worker who arrived at MDG later does not remember them, so I think this was probably made by one of the teachers because it is so well made.

 The bird is a delight.

I love the bird in blue!
Is he on his way to you too, Patrick?

Sadly noooooooooo,

He is an avid collector of Maltese glass and is always finding something new. He has adverts all over Malta :)

His ambition is to one-day open a museum of Maltese glass.

And hopefully, the next one is mine.... if there ever is another one. I too am an avid collector of MDG animals and birds. :)
