Hello! I collect vintage (1930 - 1980) engraved glass, mostly from Sweden and other Nordic countries. Last summer, I donated 111 pieces to the American Swedish Historical Museum in Philadelphia. They used my gift, along with donations in memory of a longtime member, to refurbish a gallery, permanently dedicated to glass. Yet, my collection continues to grow, beyond what I can enjoy, and even beyond what the museum can take. So I just opened a shop through Etsy, called Stories Told in Glass. I have begun stocking the store, and I will continue to do so as my schedule permits. Please take a look, making sure to click through to the listing to read what I've been able to learn about each piece. If you are looking for a particular theme, drop me a note, and I'll look through my 700+ piece inventory. Enjoy! storiestoldinglass.com
Kind regards, Jen

Malta Glass / Re: Is this an Mdina Tricorn vase?
« Last post by Owen_W on Yesterday at 08:26:08 PM »
Thanks for clearing that up as well. It did look like a nice charger, it has sold now. Well if I find some more Mdina then I will be back if I can't find any good info on it. Back to collecting a couple of Swedish glass pieces this week which should add to my collection, so that's my budget gone for the month! Hope there is more cheaper stuff in the charity shops but very little Swedish glass (if any) in my local ones.

Thanks again.

Glass / Re: signed black glass vase any clues on name?

It is right though?
It doesn't look like any Gray-Stan I've ever seen. The art glass is normally quite complex mixes of colours.

Hi guys,

I have been speak to Fornasetti this last week and they have said:

"Please be informed that Piero Fornasetti was used to sell in his shop in Milan some objects that he did not designed or produced but he liked, as these paperweights of Murano glass."
They confirmed these were sold in his shop and made to fit their labels so they would sit on the base, which is why they are all finished the same on the base.

Great info on where they were actually made thank you guys.

Interesting he did this as it was not common!

Kindests E

Glass / Re: Freeform sculpture - Chinese or Murano?
« Last post by chopin-liszt on Yesterday at 01:09:30 PM »
I'd go with Chinese. Loads of these used to be found in TKMaxx with Made in China labels on. The plinth is the one I'd expect for that origin.

Thank you Anne ;)  I'll settle for Chinese for the moment.
I'm sure I've seen these, or something similar for sale (new items) in the British Heart Foundation ??? shops in the past. 
Not my cup of tea but I know someone who would love it ;D
