Hi All,

Pretty sure someone will recognize this one. Relatively small vase, lightish blue in colour with swirled lines of colour running around the vase.  Measures 3.5 inches high.

Has a very distinctive impressed/stamped design within the pontil mark. (Photos attached)

All thoughts appreciated.

Thanks
Greg

Christine, we crossed postings! :) while you're here, is it Island Studio Glass or Guernsey Glass?

Thanks everyone. Had a look at a few other pontil marks on the web, 'Island Studio Glass' looks like a good fit.

Just to check are 'Guernsey Glass' and 'Island Studio Glass' two different companies ?Just come across conflicting info on the web.

Thanks,
Greg

I have a paperweight with the same impressed mark and also its original label which is Island Studio Glass. From the little research I did before listing it on eBay, I'm pretty sure that Island Studio and Guernsey Glass are (or should I say were, as I believe that Island Studio closed in 2002) different companies.

Hope this helps a bit, John. 8)

 :ooh:
I thought they were the same! But that's what this mark is.

OK, Island Studio Glass on Guernsey (not the US Guernsey Glass)
