Isn't that an Ingrid Glass label?

It says Torben Ostrov & Co Denmark, with an intertwined Tand O.

Indeed Rosie, similar but not the same. BTW, how did you find that cross shaped vase? I would not have found that in a month of Sundays...

Firstly, I let John make the supper, then
I looked through all the cross glass pictures, then....and this is the most amazing...............
I put cross shaped art glass vase in Google images.....voila!!
It looked similar, and I followed the link and that one led to another similar one, and so on until I got a name for a maker,
then another one which had a label!
Simples!!  :sun:

BTW the label reads Torben Orskov and not Ostrov...

Google finds quite a lot of items, but not much glass. - So maybe a retailer?

Well done Rosie.

That last link gives a designer too Anne (Bodil Kjær).

I have to admit to being disappointed when I clicked on Desk ass.  :-[

Hi, thanks for all your help! I think we might have cracked it, Torben Orskov Co designed by Bodil Kjær, nice result. I wonder who actually made them, presume T.O. would have designed them then got a company to make them? The label on mine is defo oval and not the same as the previous one mention but i guess labels change. Here's one the same as mine, thanks again,
