I know... I'm sorry... I have to figure a way to make smaller... I will.

Can you view them?

You don't really need to put the image on here as well as the link to your photo gallery, that alone is fine.

I have 2mg broadband, and your pics didn't load within the thread for me....!!  But I clicked through on your link absolutely fine.

I think it may be late Whitefriars but someone else will come along soon and confirm. I know they did doorstops in this colourway.
No retreat, No surrender.

You also posted this query in the Glass Paperweight forum. Your instincts were right. I replied with confirmation and a link to an image of something similar. Yours is a variation of a 1970s Whitefriars doorstop series. See my reply in the Glass Paperweight forum.

Hi,

Oh, I wish this was mine! It's lovely!  :)

I have seen similar patterns from Gränna Glasbruk in Sweden and also Rainbow Art Glass in Huntington, WV, USA.

This is my first time adding pics so I hope it works!

Could this be Gränna or Rainbow instead of Whitefriars? What do you think?

regards,

Ingela
