Glass Events / Re: Charity Paperweight Auction
« Last post by paperweightsplus on Yesterday at 03:37:19 PM »
We've now received a donation of a weight from a customer!  This is a mini latticinio weight from Mike Hunter

She experienced the Christchurch New Zealand earthquakes and is still living through the aftermath and so can understand that while there is great need for immediate aid, this is an event that will impact for a generation or more.

We will be handling auction bids but the weight will be sent to the winning bidder from New Zealand.

Please bid in GBP. A starting price of 40 (US$62 approx) has been set with increments of 5 (US$7.50 approx)

For more details http://www.paperweightsplus.com/phdi/p1.nsf/supppages/pwp?opendocument&part=21#pgmk03

Both auctions will end at 9pm UK time on Sunday 17th May

Murano & Italy Glass / Re: ISSEL GENOVA Had made large Manta or Ray
« Last post by philyesil on Yesterday at 12:28:31 PM »
Hi again, the clue was the label, it wasn't the makers but the sellers name and now I have managed to find several similar pieces which are Murano. Getting a valuation is a little more difficult though. This is more of an art glass than some of the other similar items which are paper weight size.
Anymore info greatly appreciated.

Many thanks.

I've got the odd finely blown bit of early Mdina too, and the short tortoiseshell I showed is the IoWSG one - it's thicker than the Mdina one - but that was perhaps because the same size of gather was gathered, and so the shorter one ended up thicker. Perhaps estimating the size of gather needed was still something that required refinenent?

It being thin, though does support an IoW attribution.

Is there any way we could be completely off track and it is something outlandish like WMF - I've been convinced WMF was Mdina before. It was a piece mhcgolfclub had for id-ing here. ;D
I hope John turns up and says something.

These smaller half-pinters appear also in the 1966 & 1972 Whitefriars cats.. so quite a long production run , they must be fairly common .

Ideal size for you Carolyn, with your small mitts  ;)

Thank you both Anne and Ivo for your help, I am about to photograph the piece but wanted day light to get the best results. You may be correct about the label being a retail label but I believe someone will recognise the makers style as the workmanship is stunning and so life like, it looks like it would swim off it you placed it in water! Back soon with photos.

Many thanks

Phil
