Ekenas, or something else? - ID = Mdina
« on: August 29, 2018, 12:59:28 PM »
This lovely little bowl arrived today. I bought it on my own and the seller's fairly confident assumption that it's a piece by John Orwar Lake for Ekenas, but it isn't signed. Were unsigned pieces common?

The streaking, clouding and bubbling characteristics are different to the Nazeing pieces we own, but I know other glass manufacturers have produced similar ranges at various times.

Dims: 6" diameter; 2.25" high.

Thanks in anticipation once again.  :)

It's an everted rim dish, (fairly) early Mdina. :)
And an unusual colourway for one of these. There have been a couple of others posted here recently, they seem to be coming out of the woodwork just now.
It won't last. I really don't think there are that many of them around.

(ps. I am not stalking you either, it just looks like it.)
Cheers, Sue (M)

 ;) I knew I should have been able to trust you to have a full collection of these, Greg.  ::)
I've only recently obtained my very first one.
I like the one at the bottom right hand side the best, in your pic.
Cheers, Sue (M)

Thank you, both of you, very much.  :) Now, I hadn't considered Mdina, though I've often admired the glass. I haven't had the space in my brain to learn about a whole new area, but it looks as though the decision has been made for me!

And no, Sue (if I may use your first name?), I didn't think you were stalking me.  ;D

Lovely photo, Greg, and I too covet the one on the lower right...

Of course you can, Helen.  :)
It's much quicker to type than my username.
