Exactly what I thought, Christine.
My initial thought for both of them was Skruf, as I have seen couple of very similar ones.
I have some Japanese glass, but this is totally unlike it.  :?

Hello,

I did a few searches using OTK and came up with a lot of results related to spanking???

I did get one result, which leads me to believe that OTK probably doesn't make anything, but is only an importer\exporter of items they purchase from the makers.

Your label says OTK Glass Japan and this person's porcelain tea cup set says OTK China Japan on it. --- Mike

Hi Mike,
Yes, spanking and all sorts of stuff. That is all that I found too.  :?
I think that you are probably right and that it is an importers label.
I did find one really large importer/exporter call OTK, but they deal in grain products and cotton. I presume that they could also have dabbled in glass.

Olde Tea Kup  :lol:  obviously an importer if they cannot tell China from Japan :?

Sorry, could not resist having just spent half an hour reading Witch magazine to Felicity in Dutch

:lol: Frank :lol:

I find more often than not that the words "Made in" before the name of the country are a safer bet that the item was made by the company name on the label. If a label says "company name" + "country name" only,  it usually turns out to be just an import\export company, who is located in that country. Not a strict rule to go by, but something to consider when it comes up.

Oddly enough;  I have found a couple of Nachtmann crystal items with importer\exporter names and Japan on them, plus a Nachtmann label too. --- Mike

And of course it could be a retailer. Such as Elwell's which are often taken on eBay to be the maker.

The dodgy porn-ish sites are related to Over The Knee.

I did a Google earlier...I didn't know that without looking, honest!
