I love this glass with an engraved bird, possibly an eagle, with a fish in its talons.

 The bottom part of the glass is dark purple on on the base are the initials L.S. Do they ring a bell with anyone? It looks Scandanavian in design, but apart from that ..... :(

The other is a swan and it is signed on the base, but I can't make it out, and also has a label for Marcolin but I haven't heard of them. It really is lovely though as all the feathers are individual.

MARCOLIN

There is an assumed connection with Josef and Benito Marcolin. Two seconds to Google this – try looking for "marcolin glass" (without the quotes.

:D Hello Barbara,
To me, the colour, shape and theme of the engraved piece say Caithness. I don't know what the L.S. might be though. I shall wait and see if I'm corrected. :D
Cheers, Sue (M)

FM konstglas Ronneby - Fratelli Marcolin, Josef and Benito, worked in Sweden for many many years. The association with Sardinia after their retirement lasted only a few months - don't know where the online information came from but it is not complete or correct. The sig you cannot read probably says  "FM Ronneby"

Hi Ivo,

The information came from www.great-glass.co.uk and I'm very suprised if the information is wrong as Philip is normally very astute. However, it does state their main involvement was with Ronneby:

... who operated the Ronneby glassworks in Sweden (1961 - 1990)


Which I assume is correct?

Marcolin Art Crystal, Sardinia, Italy (late 20th Century)
Decorative crystal & coloured glassware. Presumably some connection with Josef and Benito Marcolin, who operated the Ronneby glassworks in Sweden (1961 - 1990)


The company was called Marcolin Art Crystal, located in Ronneby, Sweden for many years - until 1999 or 2000 I believe, when the brothers retired back to Italy. The company was never located in Sardinia, though the name was briefly owned by SC. I think they fell out after only a few months...

Hi Barbara

A very politely meant suggestion if I may. When photographing glass such as this, or most things in fact, try to see how the background has a very detrimental effect on the overall picture. Particularly with your first photograph it is really quite intrusive all the detail from the background and really makes it much more difficult to both assess and enjoy the items that you post. You are by no means the only person guilty of this.
You could buy a sheet of plain mounting board for a couple of quid or simply drape a plain sheet etc over something to act as a backdrop. Give it a try and I'm sure you'll be delighted by the result.


Regards


Gareth

The two left Sardinia and went back to Murano where they were again working in glass.
