Hi Vintiques

I have a vase with the bull head on it that is in the bottom of the glass and was told that it was English. The vase is with Mary Gregory print on the front and has a shape that is cubist. I'm not sure of the maker but maybe one of the Engish members will know.

I have had mine for about 20 years and the guy that sold me mine said that it was important which way the horns on the bull was facing ( in or out). One way was one maker from a great artist and the other way was just a common maker.  I was young then and didn't care what he was trying to say so I didn't pay much attention to his comments. :oops:

If you need a photo I will post one!

I have a pink perfume bottle with the same trademark. I believe it is contemporary and either Spanish or Portuguese. I'll try and recall where I got the information from (some time ago).

I saw a frosted (i think) clear perfume bottle with that mark in a charity shop but I just left it because it looked new. They must be quite common, probably.

Della - from the style and general appearance of the items I have seen bearing this mark, I tend to think they are contemporary.

Here's an interesting ebay auction that shows another perfume, with the mark on it - and it also has COWS HEADS written.

Only cows head mark I can find is naturalistic and for Liddle Henzell & Co, Ouseburn Glass Works, Newcastle c1890-1900. Obviously unrelated to this one.

I suppose it's also interesting to note that COWS HEAD is an approximate translation of RINDSKOPF. Though I don't think there is anything in it to suggest an actual link - it's just an interesting observation.

Thank you Frank and Glen,
The imprint is the same on the piece I have seen, so I think I will give it a miss for now. It has been for sale for a while already.
I still can't find anything to do with Cows Heads, unless I want to buy 2 real cows heads in glass :!:
