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.

It looks like quite a modern piece from the numbers on the base,  so Mdina Glass might help you if you email them with a picture of your glass and the base... they are still producing.

Here is a new photo taken at a similar angle to the Etsy-listed serving platter for comparison
-  the very distinctive "C"-shaped blocks, oblongs and deep groves etc. appear to match exactly (?)
...or are there other features detailed in Newhall's book that are absent/different ?

 - was this pattern reproduced by other companies?

not that I'd know the difference between authentic and copies, but can we be sure this one isn't an Avon production  -  they are known to have copied some Victorian milk glass patterns?

Have just seen an image in Finnish glass lives 4 which shows an item of glass very similar to yours.
It is by Heikki Orvola 1996, described as fixed blown, sandblasted, cast and polished.
Hope this is of some use.

Anyone recognise the maker, please?

2" tall, hobnail lower half, scrolls against a stippled ground top half and even a moulded pattern on the underside which seems a little unnecessary!

I also agree and believe this to be genuine :)

Thanks for the info.  :)
There is really no comparison of the qualities. Iittala wins outright.

Don't really discuss values here (it's quite subjective) but there was one finished on eBay yesterday and there's two still running at the moment.
