Green glass suncatcher
« on: October 05, 2008, 02:08:37 PM »
I'm curious about this. It's quite heavy and 4.5 " or 11.5cms diameter. The quality is not great. It has two very lagr air bubbles and held to the light masses of tiny pinprick size ones, it's fizzy. Also some inclusions that look like dirt. Depicts a sheaf of corn. A maker would be nice but looks doubtful Any help please.

I've a relation to it... same feel, slightly different design.

Never found out who made it - I assumed Scandinavian, but it could really be from anywhere in the world.

I wouldn't really judge quality of manufacture based on the presence of bubbles and frit - I know that Holmegaard made some small glass necklace pendants and suncatchers during the 1970s that were purposely full of frit and flaws to give an 'antique' look. The same could be true here.

See what you mean. They look like the same family.
