Daisy Cow Suncatcher.. ID = Glasi Hergiswil Olma pattern
« on: June 09, 2007, 09:29:29 AM »
Cast glass suncatcher with an embedded cow design. It's 100mm in diameter, and 10mm thick.


It was bought in Denmark, but it may be Swedish - the seller suggested Flygsfors as a possibility. But Swedish glass is not my forte, so I'm clueless.

As a side-note.... photographing suncatchers is *such* a pain - I had to improvise a lightbox utilising an unlikely and precariously balanced stack of cardboard boxes, gauze, a pane of glass, two lamps and four bookends!  ;D The results were pretty swish, though.

I remember having one of these with a label. I don't recall the maker but I'm sure it was Swiss.
