Hi, always in the background, Ernest Gordon collection continues to grow, albeit slowly.
Once you spot it's Romeo and Juliet, Google gets a lot easier !

Malta Glass / Re: Mdina Ochre globe

It looks fine to me Anton. They do come in various thicknesses and depths of colour.
I had a large thick globe with a button rim that was practically clear yellow.
The neck shape can vary, I've seen others with this sort of stretched up, rather than shaped, neck. The rims can be either buttony or slim.

Wow  :-* and Wow  :o
One, to see you Gareth,  ;D and the second, with the info you've just provided.
Simin Gate really is one of the top ones, isn't he?
No wonder the vase looked absoluely right. ;D

Can I assume you recognised it, rather than read and tracked down the numbers? :)

Hi guys!

I can't find the maker of this vase but i have two ideas who could have made it: Hirschberg or Friedrich - what do you think?
Height = 20,5cm

Thanks in advance!

Germany / Re: hell halbweiss?
« Last post by ian.macky on Yesterday at 01:25:22 AM »
Literally it translates to bright half white so I wondered if it means opaque rather than clear?
AFAIK the only opaque bricks were in milkglass, listed in the catalog as "opal" or "milchweiss".

I also notice my other catalog lists the basic color as just "halbweiss", not "hell halbweiss"; presumably these were the same thing and the "hell" was just marketing-fluffery.

Germany / hell halbweiss?
« Last post by ian.macky on Yesterday at 12:47:50 AM »
Can anyone tell me what the glass color "hell halbweiss" might be?  It's the cheapest color listed in Falconnier glass brick catalogs, and since the default/common glass color is the usual sort of light aqua, I assume that's what it refers to.  True clear glass ("weiss") is more expensive.

Danke...
