Heavy Glass Plate with Figures and Boats
« on: May 31, 2010, 11:42:29 PM »
Last one today I promise.  Can anyone help with an id and age on this one.  Measures 37cms across and is VERY heavy, just under 2kgs.  Very arty figures of people, animals and what look like longboats to me. Has raised areas for handles, assume it's for cheese or something, very elaborate!

Lovely!!
 The motifs are from Swedish cave drawings, I have a hunch that it is from Nybro but someone will put me right ;)
