He did have plenty of support for the new venture. I was concerned about that myself when I was speaking to Michael's twin sister, who told me that Lord Queensbury was fully behind him, as were his parents. It was a time of confidence and hope, back then.

I had to do the miserable lobster thing too. Mother just covered us in horrible smelly brown oil which was supposed to enhance the "tanning effect" - hence my use of the expression "deep fried". >:(

British & Irish Glass / Re: Blackheath wine glasses ?
« Last post by keith on Yesterday at 04:58:34 PM »
Couldn't resist so here are the photo's, 5.5. inches tall, no pontil mark, very little wear, the label says....' Intaglio Handcut By Blackheath, West Midlands' Not the best piece I've ever seen , the glass 'goes' clunk and doesn't ring. Not aware of any glass cutters or makers in the town so a bit of a mystery  ::) ;D ;D

Hello Kerrie,

That I don't know.
Maybe someone other can answer that.

I will look some more in Swedish.

It is not a date code at all, then, but a model number. Thank you, Jonas. It seems it could have first been made in the 1930's, based on those others you found. But if the same model was made for 20 or 30 years, it would possibly have the same mark if it was made in 1960's?

Hello,
(T = skål, 64 = modellnumret).
T = bowl, 64 = model number

From Swedish forum:
"Normally low numbers mean that Gerda Strömberg is the maker/designer"
"Sometimes a bowl could be in production for a long time after"

I found on one Swedish auction site, two other bowls/numbers signed  "T 52 S-hyttan 1935" and "T100 S-hyttan 1936"


Regards

Scandinavian Glass / Strombergshyttan Bowl, trying to determine date
« Last post by Kerrie789 on May 23, 2018, 05:35:41 PM »
Greetings! I have a very heavy bowl I believe is signed Stromberg T64. I've been researching the mark, but I'm not clear on how to determine the date of production. I believe T is the shape of the vessel, but what year is 64? Can someone help? Thanks!

Kerrie

The bowl measures 24cm in diameter and 9.5cm in height.

I can't add anything, but I'd happily give them house room.
I think the reproductions can be very attractive. They give you the look and ambiance without the horrendous expense and being terrified of using them properly.
And I like mushrooms. Especially glass ones.  ;D


 ;D Thanks chopin-liszt, nice to meet a fellow fungus-lover! ;)

I think there were financial considerations taken into account (help to set up new businesses) over the move to Malta, rather than the weather, which the Harris family obviously liked.
(Although I can remember my mother loved the sun, and just assumed I did too. I didn't, I hated it. Small children are not supposed to be deep fried.)
