Hi, I just purchased this at a thrift store for .49 cents.  I think it might be dominion glass with the D in the triangle, but not sure, and can anyone tell the age of this at all....I sure do not remember these -- so before my time (or not ??).  TIA for any answers.  Was dominion glass just Canada?  Also, what do all the marks mean on the base, like how do you read it.  It seems to be in really good condition.  Do you put these kind of marks at all in the gallery?  Thanks again.  ;)

Javex was probably a customer of theirs. Rest are mould marks.

Thanks David E...

I guess the .49 cents I paid for it was OK...lol.

So does anywhere on the bottom tell what year it was from?  Or do you know?  TIA

Hello:

This was made at the Dominion Glass Redcliff factory in September/October of either 1950 or 1960.
