Bicentennial Paperweight with a ship mark
« on: June 14, 2018, 04:41:47 PM »
Found a nice 3-1/2 inch bicentennial paperweight with 1776 Liberty Bell 1976 in orange friz glass.  Has a mark I have not seen before, a ship with sails set.  No G and does not look like Gentle Glass from the Bicentennial.  Have attached photos and help would be appreciated.

Mayflower Glass from Pennsylvania.  Here is a link to a brief history:
