Experience teaches that anyone who begins to collect in any field can feel a change in his soul. He becomes a joyful man filled with a deeper empathy, and a more open understanding moves his soul.

I've been looking in the Glasmarken Lexikon most of the night and I can't find it. I think the problem may be how little I know about glass. I guess I had better go back to the library. If my research won't work are there any other options that aren't expensive to have it identified?

Sarah, if not here... I do not know of another board of wider knowledge in glass and people prepared to share their knowledge!

I do think this board is the best, I was just thinking that maybe I could take it to an appraiser. Do they do identifications though? Even if they do they probably charge a lot for it.  I am still hoping that someone on this board recognizes the vase or signature.  When you look at the word what does it look like to you? The first letter looks like an "S" or an "L" to me. Thanks again Pamela!

2 days is not long, only a handful of members have passed through, some questions have been resolved after several years. We never give up.  ;)

I still have several German Trade directories to add to the Glass-Study, one of those might have a result for you.
