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.

Probably the only piece of glass that won't be on the shelf, instead it will be used as intended, not by me that is  ::) ;D ;D

Hello Kevin,

Thank you for responding. I have seen the pieces you mentioned from Finland and they do look similar. I purchased them in Arvika Sweden, a small city ( where I spent my Summers ) that is close to the Norwegian boarder. I really thought it was Orrefors or maybe Kosta Boda. I will continue to look for my paperwork and research online. Here are two more pieces from my set.

That's it, you guys are the best!  It's funny how it's obvious once you know what it is . . .

I've certainly heard of you and your website is a treat for the eyes. Thank-you for taking the time and trouble to join to show us.
I love the addition of cobwebs in the leaves of the slightly more traditional designs, they add a hint of realism and decay and so does the attitude of the polar bear - it's a bit frightening.

 :-[ 8) Well, Colin Terris would be certainly be a name to attach to the design if that is the case. I don't know enough to know the silversmith's name I'm afraid, but knowing it helps.
I really think this sort of thing needs to be looked at as a whole, and the silver work credited properly as well as the glass, in the context of the expensive and unique jewellery fashions in Scotland, in the '70s.

Looks like "BOYD" to me.

Try getting a very soft black lead pencil and rubbing it lightly across the signature area.  See the effect in the photos I have posted.

Make sure that you take  your photos so no reflections occur on the relevant areas.  I find the sky is best for that nice even light - even a cloudy day does fine.  Flash always gives unwanted reflections.
