ID for initials, please, ID = Ourglass
« on: June 25, 2017, 01:10:29 PM »
Can anyone help with who, or what company, these initials belong to?
Found on a pear paperweight. I have found a couple of pieces on the net with the same initials, but not with an ID.
TIA
If I know, I'll comment. If I think I know, I'll have a go. If I have no idea, I'll just keep quiet and learn from others, so the next time I'll know.

Ourglass, based in Devon?

A photo of the whole thing might be useful...

The writing looks absolutely right. My piece is fully signed "Ourglass '03 P.T.", so I can compare the o, the g and the 3. The fine-rough ground base is right.
They're a brother and sister team.
