S V mark - who can identify
« on: October 09, 2005, 07:23:31 PM »
Hi to all!
Readers of SG Pressglas-Korrespondenz and many many more know that we all are looking for someone to reveal this mark! Thank you for your comment!

Die Erfahrung lehrt, dass, wer auf irgendeinem Gebiet zu sammeln anfängt, eine Wandlung in seiner Seele anheben spürt. Er wird ein freudiger Mensch, den eine tiefere Teilnahme erfüllt, und ein offeneres Verständnis für die Dinge dieser Welt bewegt seine Seele.
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.
Alfred Lichtwark (1852-1914)

I know absolutely zero about pressed glass, but Ivo's book has an Sv Sidonie: pressed glass in Slovakia.  I suppose the Sv is a shortening of a name, and probably not what you're looking for - ah well...I tried to help!   :D

Hope I don't look too silly for suggesting this.   :oops:  :oops:

Among milk glass collectors, the mark "SV" is presumed to be a mark of Vallerysthal and possibly stand for Societe Vallerysthal.  However, I have never seen any definitive proof.

the SV that everybody is looking for is 99% certain French - and it is unlikely to be Valérysthal who used either Valérysthal in full, or PV for Portieux-Valérysthal. The mystery remains.
The Sv. in the Slovakian factory name is the Slavonic abbreviation for Sveti - Saint, so that does not bring us any closer. Thanks Max for looking it up.

This does not identify the S V marking, but just adds to the list of glass out there with the marking shown on it.  This ice bucket is made from uranium/vaseline glass and the inset photo shows the SV mark on the inside bottom.  It is 5" in diameter and 4 3/4" tall. The mold work shows tremendous detail on it!
