Is This Bird by Konstglas?
« on: December 13, 2009, 06:30:26 PM »
Hello to all, I have had this for a long time, to-day I saw one that was very similar but it had a Konstglas label. This is the first time I have come across the Name Konstglas. As always all help is greatley appreciated.

If I remember correctly, Konstglas means art glass in Swedish. The label you saw was probably FM Konstglas, Färe-Marcolin, a Swedish company started by brothers from Murano. There's a very full discussion of the company on this thread: http://www.glassmessages.com/index.php?topic=18160.0   Your bird is very likely an FM bird.

I've never seen this type of 'pattern' in a FM object and
my first impression was that this is not a FM Konstglas bird.

What did the label say apart from Konstglas? Do you remember?
Colour of the label? Shape of the label?
