S.P Sven Palmqvist or just P, it's no C in front of the p.

I have seen serveral pieces by Palmqvist marked CP, and the most logical theory to me is that the C indicates "Centrifuged", which is how these were made.

Could it be that what appears to be a 'c' is just a flourish of the needle of the pen getting started on the glass before the 'P' is scribed? 
I ask this because often on Mdina glass the 'M' of Mdina looks very odd and puzzles a lot of people as there is a long loop in the starting flourish...........just a thought???

'Centrifugerat' makes sense - so would this be before Fuga? Or was Fuga a specific line of centrifuged glass?

Ivo, Fuga was a specific line, Princess and the others came later.

And re. the CP, I have seen several, and the marking has been up for discussion several times at PES, so it would surprise me if it was unintended.
