Malta Glass / Re: mdina crysal marble bowl
« Last post by chopin-liszt on June 14, 2021, 11:50:03 AM »
It looks a bit more like a variation of "Crystal Blue Stripe" than Marble to me. Marble has dullish browns in it, the amber shades that appear in this are because of the way the silver has reacted with the glass and the difference between reflected and refracted light.
(You see the amber when light is coming through the glass from behind).
It's just not striped.  ;D
It probably dates to somewhere around the later '80s into the '90s on.
I don't know about the Greek market, I think things were made more for exporting to the German market around this time.

This also appears to be the same design as their 32000 trinket set.

Hello Tim, my main collection is Uranium glass but I also take an interest in all glass. I would guess that any glow you get from this colour glass is from the Manganese put in initially to remove the green tinge from Iron Oxide in the mix, but I may be wrong. The Love Decanters site shows the correct Rd No.767577.

Thanks Nev, for putting up the Love decanters site.
Looked at ruby lane listing again and of course the first word after Eda 33 is Elfverson the uk importers of Swedish made glass.
The error on the long number does not look right to me.
Is your interest in this sort of Swedish glass because it glows nicely under uv?
I have a few of these Elfverson and eda decanters.

I now think this Brockwitz "Globus/Moonprint" design although I've not yet found this pattern of creamer. The one shown here is the closest.

Hello, this bowl is quite heavy and the size of a fruit / serving bowl. Can't find anything online in the same shape and wondered if anyone had any ideas of possible maker? Thank you :)

I just bought the pink version of this vase

here is an interesting comparison of all the aforementioned designs +

it seems there may have been more than one design from one or more of the producers

the piece I have is the Walther / Sohne Gibraltar from the overall measurements noted in catalogue diagram
