Japanese Cased Bowls by "Wales"

<< < (2/3) > >>

rosieposie:
That's very interesting Wayne,  because I have seen a few glass birds on USA eBay with this label, and I assumed they were a Japanese glass company.....it hadn't occurred to me that it  might be an importer.......so thanks for that information.  :sun:

kane_u_pain:
Very nice bowls, they would look great as a set if you had all the colours along with the reversed ones. Definitely importers labels. I will keep an eye out on Aussie ebay should any pop up here with a label. Might get lucky with a manufacturer label instead of an import one.

Frank:
Wales with crown trademark first used in 1950 by New York Merchandise Co., Iin.  32 W. 23RD ST. New York. Trademark last renewed in 1975 so faded out by 1995. I have a catalogue from them somewhere?

Frank:
They appear to still exist, trademark as above shows here http://www.trademarkia.com/company-new-york-merchandise-co-inc-868096-page-1-2

Smithsonian has a collection of their catalogues too. They seem to spend a lot of time in court too.

Why do they spend so much time in court Frank?
