Anyone know this mark- etched BR-M on stemware?
« on: July 17, 2006, 05:54:22 PM »
Hi All,

Seen on the bottom of 3 glasses, etched, BR-M.  Reads when the glass is put down, rather than when you turn it over.

I wondered if it was something like British Midland, but the glasses seem a bit small for commerical use.

Many thanks
Cat

Possibly British Railways - Midland Region. Restaurant cars use to have full services. The typeface would be identical to other items so look up British Railwayana sites to match.

Don't waste time on Railwayana, I did :? virtually no glass and almost all of the ceramics were later or earlier periods. You could try writing to one of those sites to query the date period that BR-M would have been used. I think 1950/60's.

Do you have a picture of the piece?
