Glass Figure - On Swirled Base w/label
« on: February 10, 2008, 01:08:08 AM »
Does anyone know about a paper label rectanglaur shape, with like the corners concaved clipped, and just a number on it....or info/age?  It has blue going around the edges, with like a design of a line, and a dash repeating.

And the number on it...what is that for...can that pinpoint anything?

Are these older then the foil labels?    THXS

Sounds like it might be a pattern number, but as Bidda says...must have a photo!   :)

OK, that's better, now we can see the label. :)  Rose, the number is hand-written. Is it in biro or inkpen ink? If biro then it's going to be mid 20th century - see here for the dates of biros - but remember they weren't in common use until after the end of the second world war. We talked about biros somewhere else on the board a while back and in the late 1940s/early 1950s they were still a luxury cost item.

This sort of label looks unlikely to be traceable. It could be a manufacturer's product code label, it could be a retailer's stock code label. Sticky paper labels have been around for years and are still handwritten on by small dealers.

Anne,  is "biro" synonymous with "ball point pen" or is there some discernable difference in the inks used?

also, i agree with Christine that this label could have been placed by nearly anybody at any stage (manufacture, import, retail, etc.) in the early life of this piece. i believe the label itself is on par with those that are used in price guns today... nothing striking, really, to distinguish one from another.

if you're still curious about date/possible maker, a picture of the whole piece would be helpful.

Biro is a registered trademark for a ball point pen, the inventor of said pens was László Bíró according to Wiki.
Now used as another word for any ball point pen.

Hi, first of all, can MOD please combine this with topic with:  Just a question: About paper labels (not foil)

As this goes with that topic, but IF I added the pix in there after, I was afraid the topic (pix) might be missed, since other Topic stated that it was JUST a question.....

Any help on this figure - maker, age, where....Etc, etc                       THX

(Hope I did OK...) :-\
