Hi all... I have these two items and need some info please, they were bought from dealers some time ago
they have the same design to rear so must be related.
The first one is in 117mm height and weighs 1240g and number two is in 219mm height and weighs 1080g.
Thanks in advance Paul.

Probably advertising gifts. It will not be fun trying to ID the logo though. The design does look like a bollard though.

I do not have a clue with this piece of Art glass ?
« Reply #3 on: June 29, 2010, 07:24:47 PM »
I bought this because it looked interesting and I had not ever seen a piece like it before.

Unusual colour with some swirls inside the glass, smooth back, fine textured ribbed side and very top of the front, it has a textured front with the 7 v's and a square near to base with 4 dots, ribbed textured base.

No makers mark.

Height 9" or 23 cm and weight 1340 gm

Thanks for any help Roy

I have no idea either, seen one before, somewhere.... ::)

Here's another one in clear glass with two coloured bits of decoration, currently for sale on ebay.

Kosta Boda/Bertil Vallien might be worth a look, even if just to discount them.

The bottom "square near to base with 4 dots" looks like it could be BB with the first B reversed.

Looks like that to me too.  BB, with one B reversed.

No sure if anything here -- but here is a good long list of *several glass marks*.  Worth the look, and worth book-marking this page too ( I think)
http://www.myinsulators.com/glass-factories/bottlemarks.html

Lists a Berney Bond, Bellaire Bottle, Baker Bros.....?????

I do not think this list applies to *just Bottles*, as I saw E.O Brody listed there, and we all know they made Vintage Vases too.  So maybe worth a look, or just worth keeping that list for a reference for stuff down the road.

?? Merely a suggestion  :huh:

I might be going off on completely the wrong tack but the two BB back to  back remind me of the Bugatti mark.

Definitely not Kosta/Bertil Vallien. Sea and one or two of the others ( Målerås and Lindshammar I think ) have been making obelisks for quite a while but they haven't made these ones.Good luck in getting an ID  :)

The first one in this thread (clear one) looks very similar to something Ikea did that came with a small light stand under it.
