Three rabbits base imprint
« on: December 04, 2012, 02:17:18 PM »
My brother's just emailed me these two photos, I'm pretty sure it's modern but does anybody recognise the three rabbits base imprint?

Could also be three old men?!

Cheers

Looks like the 3 lions of Guernsey glass. A few more example on the board I believe.

Would help if I looked at it the right way up, I blame my brother for photographing it at the wrong angle!

Many thanks Greg

that's a nice piece Retro  -  at least it goes to prove that they don't all have a daisy flower shaped rim :)

I think it looks like 3 men in a boat - the right way up and upside-down.
And yes, the turned over rim is a far more attractive feature (I think) than the frilly edge. ( :-X )

I thought it was three Mexicans sitting against a wall. Sure looks like it in the photo here.
