OLD? STAMPED "GSU_L (THE S IS IN THE U AND UNDERLINED.

OLD, STAMPED "GSU_L (THE S IS IN THE U AND UNDERLINED)...

Trying to find out about the (frosty) glass statuette my Mom gave me a few years ago, she purchased it second hand. It's  about 10" tall and is the Virgin Mary holding the Christ Child; it's in perfect condition.  

I happened to see one similar appearing in the background on the film, "The Thin Man" with William Powell (1930's?).

I am NOT a glass collector; however, this statuette intriques me very much.

Any info appreciated.  

Thanks in advance.   :)

Dutch. Glasfabriek Leerdam 1930's designer Stephanus Albertus Uiterwaal.

Ivo:
you have a copy of the Madonna designed by Stef Uiterwaal in 1929 for Royal Leerdam. It has been in constant production since the 30s, most examples date from the 1950s. For some obscure reason they seem to fetch high prices on e-bay - where you should check for pricing details.  It was made in 2 different sizes and it not rare at all....

that IS the madonna. The one without the baby is Theresa.
