I agree with Christine as its Fenton's version of light colored Custard & they made several types of artist handpainted Hurricane shades. Your best bet is to go to Facebook & you will find 3-4 Fenton groups there to post your picture & find further information.

Thanks Christine, I rather like it, the feathering has a nice balance to it. When you're new to something it's too easy to think that a lack of replies means your item is tat , rather than that nobody knows. (I'm not sure if I'm insecure or paranoid Kind Regards Nick

Hi, This frosted, Greek Key decorated sugar bowl was advertised as M&W and has many of the right attributes. Looking at Neil's site though it doesn't match on stem or rim shape as far as I can tell, and I haven't found anthing similar anywhere else. Hoping that you guys can point me in the right direction, any information gratefully received. Best Regards Nick

Hi, Thought I'd add some slightly better pics. It's obviously not Walsh (given the tumble weed blowing across the post , but it does remind me of some of the Powell glasses. If it's rubbish I'd rather know, It's all part of the learning experience. Being a cheapskate I paid flumpence for it. Regards Nick

If you look very carefully at the base, you should see vague gouges in the polished flat base - it won't be absolutely flat, but very faintly "battutto". That is another indication of MDG - but the actual colour green is the real giveaway. It's a nice one - with a lovely slim delicate flange and gorgeous decor.

The link to the website gives rise to gobbledegook. I found that one yesterday too. I'm sure we've had this problem before, trying to find out about Phoenician, the furthest we ever got was to find the colour chart, again now a defunct site.

I've been looking through the 'Times of Malta' and the earliest advertisement for Phoenician Glassblowers Ltd., I can find , is on the 26 March 1986 , the address is Manoel Island and it states " Introducing a new concept in glass design " and gives factory opening times.
