My first thought on seeing this mark was a stylised map of Australia.......

It is shown in Glasmarken-Lexikon (scroll down): paying users (which I'm not) or owners of the Hartmann book should be able to look up details.

The printed version of Glasmarken Lexikon shows a different variation of the image - an upright rectangle with scalloped edges like a postage stamp but containing the G below a mountain.

It is said to be Carl Goldberg ["berg" tying in with the mountain image] and the reference is to Passau Glass Museum literature.

Very interested in seeing the piece. I just looked closer at the mark and then looked up Goldberg.... this mark is a cameo mark acid cut through overlaid glass that appears to have been overlaid with white and then either stained or overlaid or enamelled with a mixture of colours. So out of the ordinary. Goldberg concentrated on the luxury end of the market.

If they are not your pics we need the image owner's consent for you to post them to the board please. If you don't have that we will need to delete the images as per the Board Policy on the use of copyright material.

You could provide a link to a website or online catalogue instead.
