No Idea about this heavy glass totem or pillar Help please
« Reply #10 on: October 17, 2010, 02:13:09 PM »
I honestly do not have a clue about this. It is 9" tall and very heavy. The sides are unpolished. It has norse runes moulded into the back and amoulded mark that looks like SB. Any guesses about it or maybe someone knows.

No retreat, No surrender.

My first suggestion would be Severin Brorby, who designed for Hadeland. I haven't seen anything he did quite like this, but he did produce a variety of styles, including pressed glass. Interesting piece.

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
did you ever find out who the art glass was by ?

The mark could be a back to back BB, but it could also be EB. 

I agree that these have the look of being some kind of commercial objects - perhaps corporate give-aways or advertising objects placed in store windows or inside display cases next to merchandise.

It is not a Bugatti logo - that is an EB marking but the E in that is backwards facing left and the ends of the E are open.  Click on this photo to enlarge it and then look at the logo that is in black just above the white BUGATTI lettering to see what it looks like.  It is sort of like a 3 B.
