Underlined W on Blue Footed Glass Goblets

Just to add a note about the pattern name and mould maker. In "The L G Wright Glass Company" (Measell & Roetteis) the pattern is called No. 11 DOUBLE WEDDING RING. It dates from the 1960s and the moulds were made by Al Botson (B Machine and Mould, Cambridge, OH).

Ok then so the mystery is solved?  
Does the mark coincide with a Westmoreland mark?
Please say yes.........  
I went to the L.G. Wright site, very big.  It will take some time to get through it.

The pattern makes sense, I knew it reminded me of something. The wedding ring pattern used on quilts.  

I have posted quite a few pics on the yobunny site.  I have lots more, but hence I must get some work done also,  :cry:

Westmoreland used several marks, but not, to the best of my recollection, an underlined W. (They had a W and G superimposed: W in a keystone and the word WESTMORELAND in a semicircle around III).

L G Wright used the W underlined within a circle - they also used what has come to be known as the (infamous....long story) "wonky N" which is a W with one side shorter than the others, to make it look like the Northwood N.

Other companies used an underlined W (Westinghouse and Wheaton, I think) but I feel pretty sure that we are looking at what Della said right at the beginning......L G Wright.

Yes my Mark though not on every goblet, actually only two out of eight, is the letter W Underlined and in a circle. The W reminds me of a crabclaw at the top, as the tops are turned inward. I found that rather odd.

Thanks for everyone's help, I have enjoyed this.

Della and Glen are right - I beg to apologize again, that yesterday's reply was too fast and by heart - as said.  :cry:
This evening in Hartmann I traced the underlined W in a circle only for Wright too.

I may explain for my excuse that during our meeting here beginning of June we had an unknown candlestick holder, I traced the Westmoreland mark and had forgotten meanwhile its exact look - yes: WG

again please excusez
