British & Irish Glass / Re: Wedgwood 'Fledgling' in Lilac.
« Last post by rosieposie on Yesterday at 01:05:13 PM »
I also have a Neodymium bird which I have always believed could be Wedgwood, but as there are neither markings nor label, I can only go by the shape of the eye and general gut feel I have. The tail on this is different and it could be that it is a Scandinavian piece.
However,  the ellies and squirrel are definitely lilac Wedgwood glass

Cheers Sue, I might have to subscribe to this newspaper as there is even an advert for a Malta Decorative Glass 'Grand Sale' in 1975 !

I wonder if there are any personnel records at Mdina to back up what Said said ?

Hi Paul  have you tried testing it for Neodymium?  I have 2 Wedgwood elephants with this lilac coloured head, and a squirrel which are neodymium, so might well be worth trying.  :)

I think I did find that article several years ago. I remember trawling through about 300 pages of archives, but latterly, I was unable to track it down - well done, Mike, that must have been some seriously tenatious searching.
But where does that leave us? Doubting Said's memory from the time he spoke to Wolfie?

Glass / Re: thin and long blue glass vase with a bubble at the bottom

Well I guess we'd need to know the size - but I reckon I have a similar one and I reckon it's recent Chinese, or maybe at a push Polish. It has a bubble at the bottom (not entirely clear in picture) and is not clear cased, but the same colour throughout. I also had a much larger one with a bubble in the bottom too. That had the matte finish Chinese type ground pontil.

On Tuesday May 12 1970 page 5 of the Malta Times there is a piece on Mdina  with photo as in Mark Hill's book (page 23). You might have to subscribe to read it though.

Glass / Malta Decorative Glass Ltd opening and closing dates !
« Last post by Baked_Beans on Yesterday at 07:11:13 AM »
Pleased to say I have found out the opening and closing dates for Malta Decorative Glass ltd, please see this link......

http://www.timesofmalta.com/

You can search their archives here.

On page 13 of the Sunday Times of Malta dated December 6, 1981 there is a list of government factories and it states that Malta Decorative Glass opened in 1974 and closed in 1978 . In the Times of Malta you can see various adverts for trainees and a production manager is advertised on 18/12/1975. I think Boffo must have left Mdina prior to 1977 (perhaps 1974/5) .
