German Glass pre 1979 - ID = Hessenglas
« on: July 25, 2018, 06:51:06 PM »
Trying to identify a German Glass manufacturer.
Pre 1979 I think as label says West German.
The manufacturer has a triangle label with two letters H & G. Both are wide at the top narrowing to the bottom point.
Any ideas?

Welcome to the GMB Brian.

That would be Hessenglas.
