mystery glass block - ID = R. M. Yates, Cleveland, Ohio
« on: July 04, 2018, 08:43:50 PM »
can anyone identify this large etched glass block.  On one side is a whaling vessel with whalers manning the oars, on the other side is a large whale breaching the water.  I am not sure it is Scandinavian, but is came from the boxes I have brought out of storage after 20 years, so it may well be.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.  The block is 7.5" x 7.5" and 3 inches thick.

Hi everyone, after do more research on this Glass Block, I stumbled upon the information I was looking for.

This is Titled "Moby Dick" and was produced by artist R. M. Yates, from Cleveland, Ohio is the USA.  From the 1970's, a very nice piece, weighs about 13 pounds,
