glass swallows, identification, if possible, please.
« on: August 06, 2012, 02:55:51 PM »
Hello. No posts for a long time but help need if possible please.
We have been donated two glass swallows from different donors.
The first is of clear glass. It is quite daintily made. The ground base has a mark: a W or M or a combination of them. It is 12 cms long and 7 cms tall.
The second is larger and of much rounder form, especially the tail V. It has a ground base and a red glass inclusion. It is 14 cms long and 7.5 cms tall.

I think the logo etched on the base in NV in an incomplete circle. Is it perhaps n.v. glasfabriek ?

Definitely not glasfabriek.  Maybe Nason Vetro or Marc Aurel or Mglass.
