Glass Mark Id please
« on: September 20, 2007, 11:16:49 AM »
Hello all,  Please can anyone help me to identify a piece of glass that belonged to my Mother.  This piece is pressed glass probably from the 1930's.  It has the letters VA with a D across them and FRANCE underneath, impressed into the base of the bowl.  Thankyou.

(Verreries d'Alsace)

circa 1923 (ref Hartmann)

A picture would be interesting for an early piece like this.

Thankyou so much Frank for the info.  :) I did not realise this was an early lalique piece.  If I had I would have been rather more careful with its display.  However it is not damaged in any way not even scuffed at all so I guess that is good.  I would post a photograph of it but I do not know how to do that.   Thanks again.  Sheila
