Does somebody recognise this makers label please?
« on: July 07, 2010, 07:20:01 PM »
Hi!  I have just bought 4 LOVELY blue tumbler glasses all for the princely sum of £2.99.  Each glass has a foil label on it which says Swedish Art Glass and has what looks like an H in an eye, and a goblet ontop of that with what look like rays of sunshine around it.

Sorry, hope the description was ok.  Does it ring any bells?  Image to follow.

Many Thanks for any help

Kind Regards

George Hardy - an importer rather than a manufacturer.

Mod: Dynamic link changed to absolute one. Dynamics change the image offered depending on the viewers sorting preference, absolutes always show the same image.

Hello!

Thanx ever so for the information.  You guys know your stuff.  Were George Hardy an importer of all types of Swedish glass, would you be able to tell who the maker was if I added a photo?

Possibly, so please add a photo. Hardy imported glass from various places I think.

Guira, if you're having trouble posting an image, email it to me and I'll attach it for you. (Just click on the email icon, which looks like an envelope, in the box to the left).

Chris, "Italy definitely"? Not when the label reads "Swedish Art Glass".

Hi Cathy B, 'Italy definitely' was in response to Christine " Hardy imported glass from various countries I think"
