Help in identifying maker - ID = Bormioli, Italy
« on: September 22, 2011, 04:45:15 AM »
I have an amber coloured decanter and glass set (6 glasses although there were originally 8 in the set) that I think is circa 1960-1970's. I have been trying to find out who it is made by as I am trying to decide whether to keep or sell.
I have posted a pic of the decanter and a glass as well as an etching of the makers mark on the bottom of the decanter.
If anyone has any idea about this, I would love to know.  :)   PS. I am in Australia if that is of any help.

Welcome to another Aussie on the board.  Personally I am from Melbourne.  I suggest you look at the following link

http://www.glassmessages.com/index.php?topic=42159.new;topicseen#new

and particularly the first three replies which make suggestions about what makes it easier to help you.  Your photos are very small, for instance - try for as close as you can to 124Kb file size - usually c. 600x600 pixels - sometimes more as the complexity or simplicity of the phot can make quite a difference.  Remember there is a limit of 999 pixels in either direction.

Another thought was to invert you maker marking (see photo) - looks like ERF or perhaps BRF to me - no idea who the maker is but I am sure you will get help if you supply some more pictures - especially of the base and the mark.

I think it is Bormioli from Parma, Italy.

Thanks guys. You have pointed me in the right direction.   ;D
This is my first attempt at tracing makers marks and origins and I have realised how frustrating it is when you don't know what you are doing!

Yes, sure Bormioli as stated.
Sometimes is possible to find the jug and tumblers (both individual section) also named: Bahia

More or less from 1975/76 to 1979

Designer: Mazzi

Interesting - they chose to use the name again some years ago:
