Hello
Had this kicking about for a while now.
Green glass goblet with copper band stands 9cm high diameter widest 9cm.
Has a mark on the band that looks like a rabbit to me.
Any ideas?
Cheers

Well, the most collectable of these 1960s-style glasses was made designed by Wiktor Berndt for Flygfors, but there seem to have been many factories copying the idea. The Flygfors pieces are very high quality with a beaten copper effect and all signed, so yours probably isn't that.

Yours seems to be higher quality than the vase of blue glass with an iron sleeve which is discussed in this thread here, and tentatively identified as being Spanish, possibly Lafiore.

There seem to have been a lot of people copying the idea. For instance, I have one piece with the label of an Australian factory which I think was called Leona Glass (and yes I should know, but almost everything we own is in storage at the moment including all my notes & glass.)

I have one of these witht thesame mark and agree it is of the highest quality - unlike the Spanish rustic stuff which tends to be wrought iron or worse - wrought rust.
Not all Flygsfors is signed though, and it might well be a Berndt piece.

This style has also been produced by Driburg Kristall in the sixties, but unfortunately
I don't know whether the copper was marked or not. Assuming it possibly came from a
provider, could it also be their mark?
BTW I rather see a mouse than a rabbit....  Well, one's white rabbit is another one's
white mouse... LOL  ;D

Not Driburg then, I suppose...  :)

   now the first one is shown, too.  :huh:

The mouse or rabbit thing was easy - it´s the shape of the country I was born in, Finland  :D

The glass goblet is designed by Jan Salakari for Kumelan lasi, Finland, in 1960´s and early 1970´s.
The book "Oy Kumela Lasimaalaamosta tehtaaksi" says in page 53 that those glass-copper dishes were marketed by Suomen Matkailijayhdistys (Finnish Tourist Association...my translation to English  :P) and that second quality was sold also in the Kumela factory shop.

Brilliant - thanks a lot for the info!  :)
And welcome here, too!

Great to have this info finally. I know a fellow collector who will be delighted, too, when I pass
this on.
