Pink glass Gobblet or something...
« on: April 30, 2007, 01:59:49 PM »
This is another piece I picked up at a thrift store. Does anyone have any idea what it is? There are two seam lines, and there is a makers mark in the middle of the bottom (at the very bottom of the stem) but I just can't make it out. It looks to be something like Forlor, Forlon, Finlor, Finlon... :P I'm pretty sure it starts with an F. There is also the number 8. Thanks'ya!!

Fenton in an oval with a small 8 is from the 1980s. Mike butchiedog's ebay me page has a brilliant list of glass marks
