Malta Glass / Re: Mdina Earthtones new information......
« Last post by Nemmie on Today at 06:08:22 AM »
is it new information?.. I have just discovered that Mark Hill said earthtones is post Harris but mid 70s. Which fits with what I own but doesn't fit your story.

I think I will stick to his version of events as it matches the physical evidence.

Any help would be really appreciated.

This is a really great piece of glass! I do not have much more to add than the views expressed by John and "M" but I have also seen it in person. The delicacy of the work is impressive in person, incredibly deep and fine lines on the columns. I am not sure acid alone could achieve such precision. I tended towards Stourbridge as an origin somehow, partly due to the clear foot, though the threads on Etruscan style decors that "M" pioneered on GMB are worth re-reading for background to the decor used in various countries... a great piece from anywhere!

Glass / Re: Need help identifying this vase - please see pics

I tried the talcum powder and carbon paper- each worked best for the different style of etching. I hope this can help someone identify the markings. Thanks! Monica

This IoW shelf is described as ' Tortoiseshell 1973 - 1983 ' , it's not easy to read the label in this photo. So it covers a period prior to 1978 and is very similar to 'earthtones' just in a spiral form .

Glass / Re: Antique Blue Glass Set + Scent Bottle

Yes it could be very well that it's some kind of glass disease or something.

The underside of the plates are flat.

I have been searching on the plates, but I couldn't find any matches.

It looks as though it is crizzled perhaps but I don't know without seeing the glass? that's not age but degradation of the glass.

Does the underplate have a polished pontil mark - a very large one that nearly fills the whole base?

You might be able to match the plate design at some point.

I think the bowl and the cutting along the rim of the bowl might make me think c.1860 ish.
