Initials on glass bowl JB or BJ
« on: March 03, 2013, 07:35:20 PM »
Can anyone help to tell me the maker of my glass bowl. I think the initials are JB or BJ. The initials are not hand written. The initials are acid etched. It's a Big J with a bold capital B resting in the bowl of the J. The down stroke of the B is not attached to the rest of it. Really beautiful heavy crystal bowl. 4" deep x 8" approx across. I am having trouble putting a photo on as it is too big.
Thank you for looking

Hi and welcome!
We really do need pics. There's loads of techie. info here on how to do it !
(you'll need different instructions depending on what systems you're using),22.0.html

We'd like an image of the whole piece, a good base shot, the rim and the mark. The best way to bring a mark up for photography is to rub a tiny bit of talcum powder over it with your thum.
Cheers, Sue (M)
