Hi, I apologise for my transgression - I should have linked to the page
the pictures are on, in my eagerness I had a lapse in etiquette.
I have just recently found this board along with a resurrection of my glass interest and I probably get a little carried away.
When asking for help with a piece that I'm considering it is with the intention of buying it for myself, and hoping that I won't overpay too much. As a novice collector I'm going to overpay quite a few times,
I can only hope to avoid many huge hits.
Some I will probably sell as time goes by and my collection takes
a turn or the house gets too full, but this is not something I'm doing as part of a business.
I try hard to identify a piece on my own using ebay and the many websites dedicated to glass, but I come up short sometimes.
I love murano glass, and I hope to learn a lot about it as I go along,
for now I know only a little about glass other than Norwegian.
I have ordered books on paperweights and thinking of getting Pina's book.
I read the thread that DenCill pointed to and I realise that I have been
a bit overeager in my requestes for help, I have the utmost respect for
the knowledge that members of this board posess and share and I
hope to be able to share in return. I am working on putting up a gallery
of the glass I have that I do know the makers and designers of along with signatures, it will be mostly Norwegian glass.
I hope I have not overstayed my welcome by posting too many requests
in a short time. It was thoughtlessness on my part.
As to the bowl, svazzo's pointer to Avem was just the pointer I needed
to figure out the rest for myself.
Humble aplogies and thanks.
