Nobody knows where they'll end up, or what will happen along the way.
If you enjoy the journey, it won't matter. 8)

Sorry, can't help with designer, you need someone with more Whitefriars experience than me. However, the pattern number is 9850 and I believe they were made by Ray Annenberg. A bit of googling may throw up more information about them.

A link here to a page from the Whitefriars 1978 catalogue which shows one of these weights: http://www.whitefriarsorg.co.uk/resources/cat7831_33.jpg

As far as I know they always have the three big air bubbles and they are made with two or more different colour canes stretched and swirled within the weight.

Malta Glass / Re: Modern Fish Vases and a Genuine Joseph Said Signature
« Last post by WhatHo! on August 19, 2017, 04:05:36 PM »
It well known now that Joseph Said did not normally sign anything in the early days, certainly in the 1970s. All pieces were signed by Dobson or Marie from packing.
This signature is helpful :)

Hi all. I've been struggling to identify this piece for a while and have had to admit defeat. Could anyone here help please? I don't think it has much age, there is no wear. Measures 8" tall. Tia.
