Anyone know this mark ?? - ID = Gibraltar Crystal
« on: May 09, 2013, 02:15:49 PM »
Hi, I have tried to read this rotated upside down and mirrored but my brain cant/wont form an image I can see clearly. I can see a key and think its a house. It is on the base of a pink/rose vase in a local shop.  I said I would take a look to try and ID it and im stumped.
Pete. :-)

I still can't see three  lions  ;D ;D thanks again to both of you. I will let the charity shop know. It may sell better if its named. I have noticed that even when a sig or makers mark they rarely mention this.

Hi Pete,  they are three long thin lions lying stretched out one above another... it is pressed in and like so many pressed marks they rarely come out clearly. The company is Island Studio Glass, Guernsey.
Here is a Google link for you to see others to reassure yourself:

I'm with Pete on this one. To me it does not look like the usual Guernsey "three lions" stamp. More like "three towers" and there is something that looks like a key below the main image.

Yes, I can see three towers with flags flying and a key below, now that I am on the main computer with a decent sized screen instead of my 10" notepad!... so it is back to the drawing board....  :-[
