Large Goblet with Face Any Ideas??
« on: December 18, 2005, 06:02:05 AM »
Hi I have 2 of these heavy glass goblets & was wondering if anyone has any ideas of their origin.  They both have an impression of a face on them.  Sorry about the pics as they're not great.

This looks familiar, can't quite place it though. On another site somewhere, I was thinking to myself, that looks odd for that company to make that. I can't remember the company but, Riihimaki springs to mind.

Why? I don't know it looks nothing like Riihimaki. Lets face it, I could be halucinating again. I wouldn't want to lose face either, so no, i don't think it is.

On the face of it, I haven't got a clue. Perhaps it is faceless, though, it isn't if you know what I mean.  :lol:

Thought I might bump this one up a little with some annoying jokes to boot.  :oops:

Suzi
Pamela is just commenting on the style.
You will need to find examples for yourself.
The website under Pamela's name is her own website and the line above indicates that it's just part of her "signature".

It is awfully familiar - I would guess Bengt Edenfalk for Skruf but unable to find a proper reference right now.
