Help identifying glassware
« on: December 20, 2012, 10:07:52 PM »
I have some glassware I want to sell but I don't know anything about its manufacture or value. It's about 25 years old. The pieces all have frosted petals around their bases (see photo). I can't find any marks or stamps on any of the pieces.

Hello and welcome to the board :)
Unfortunately I can't help with your glass, but hopefully someone will be along who has far more knowledge and will recognise the pattern for you. Your picture is great,  but perhaps you could put up a picture of one piece that has the design clearly showing as that might help id them as well :)

Hi and Welcome,    Nice collection you've got there.  Sort of art deco style.  I do agree with flying free, an individual picture would be preferred, also remember to include a base shot.  This will help.   With regards to the manufacturer, I have no idea other than you looking at this site as a start.  You could try writing to them.  Prior to doing this, I would check the base methodically for any markings.  Sometimes markings are not clearly visible unless you magnify the area.
