Came in a job lot with other glass.

Thanks in advance Ben

The (xxx)AN & Co A-B is the name of a company (AB, A.B. A-B etc is the approximate Swe equivalent of Ltd.)

Can it be an advertizing thing? (but the company name/logo should have been somewhere on a viewing place... like under/by the boat?)

As Kerstin says, it is an old company mark.
