Help .. Mystery Rune Symbol Contemporary Glass Art? ID = Bergdala
« on: September 17, 2013, 03:04:01 PM »
[Mod: This thread was originally placed in the Glass Market Place forum because the item was, then, in a live auction. As the sale has long since completed and we now have an ID, the thread is moved to the Scandinavian forum.]


I am after info on this piece of art work.  I can not find any information on the internet anywhere.. ANY help would be very much appreciated.. thanks.    I could only upload one small picture.  I have it listed on eBay if you wish to take a better look and there are lots more larger pictures and it can been seen a lot better!
I have put a link at the bottom of this cry for help..

It has four symbols vertically placed in the center and at the bottom it seems to be a signature?? 
A large capital B and a reverse B next to it??  Like an abstract butterfly?

I have discovered that the symbols are Rune symbols for the letters (from top to bottom) spelling out 'Z U N A' ..  this is the Arabic word for the name 'Sunnah'. 
That's all i could find out about the word zuna.

That's all i can work out full stop . Who? when? what?.. any help would be appreciated!

Please help!!!  Thank you kindly in advance for what ever anybody is able to tell me .. thanks..     Please feel free to message me through glassmessages.com or an through an eBay message ... cheers kindly muchly lovely jubbly..

Thanks John, had always found these puzzling, good to finally come across one with a label. :)
