Marimekko are well-known for their fabrics. Does anyone know if the company had its own glass-making plant, or was glass made for them, and if so by which company? The piece I have found has in raised lettering to the base "Marimekko".
The second question refers to a pressed glass vase, and raised lettering.
Does anyone know whether the bases of moulds could be changed to give an indication of the intended export market? The example I have is marked to the base "Tchecoslovakie", obviously for the French market. I feel sure I have seen the same pattern in the UK, unmarked to the base.
I have been unable to discover whether the use of raised marks ended before or after WWII.
I have a feeling that the piece is post-war, possibly Sklarny Inwald or Sklo Union.
I know Peter and I have the same pattern of "art deco" vase, which in my case, is acid-etched "importe du Tchecoslovakie", and have seen top marques with raised marks, mainly pre 1939.
This vase does not look pre-war, but might be. I'm thinking now an image might be helpful???
Thanks in advance for any information,
