Czech Ring or Pin Dish
« on: April 28, 2013, 04:11:51 AM »
Picked this up yesterday at a home sale that had 30's glass although not interesting, however this small Ormolu vanity dish (4" diamater, 1" height) was interesting & at first I thought French then in a very small etched circle (had to use a loop) was Czecho-Lovakia & the letters F, B, S in a triangular shape. Does anyone know who/what FBS stands for? Thanks, Ken

Thanks Nemmie....guess it must be an importer or retailer. Appreciate you looking as all I could find was a Czech Co. that makes (today) towel racks, soap dishes, etc.  Ken

Thanks Ivo...well from what I read it seems there is no answer except the mark appears on glass imported into the U.S. in the 30s.
