Hi Vickie,
i think its one of the scandinavian crystal companies, Nybro maybe?

Maybe a moderator could move this to Glass or scandinavian, im sure someone will
recognise it.

Cheers
Andy

Hi Andy
           thankyou for your reply, I will put a new letter onto the Scandinavian area, and see if I get a response. I had a look at some Nybro items on Ebay but they don't seem to have a signature like mine.
Thanks again for the welcome!
Best Wishes
Vickie  ;D

Vickie you don't need to repost stuff. Just add a reply asking for a Moderator to move it over for you please. Oh and welcome to the board. :)

Its definitely Mats Jonasson.. the base is marked with his initials at the front the second letter that looks like a Y is in fact a J, I think its a piece he designed for Royal Krona. Paul

Hi,
No question Christine. I've had loads of these and I have seen them in all lights at boot sales etc. and I think recognising them has become second nature. I actually found one early miniature one of a hedgehog at a boot this morning with just the abreviated MJ Sweden mark.
Cheers,
Bryn

    Thankyou Christine and Bryn,
                                            for helping me solve this, I have has a look on google and I have found a few under his name so that must be it solved, thank you! Appart from the rest of the word after MJ still can't figure this out!
Was is made in the 1970's? as I saw another post saying that Royal Krona finished in 1977.

Hi Vickie,
If you Google Mats Jonasson Owl 3269 you'll find your Owl listed under an Invaluable.Com auction listing including photo (lot129).
