question about GLS glass???
« Reply #10 on: September 10, 2006, 02:32:22 PM »
hello again

I have an urgent question
about a glass owl on ebay
280024679671
is this normal that the name Hellsten and Skruf is carved in the glass?
there is another one on ebay , looks similar to me, but this one has a label with Skruf, crown etc...
what is a correct marked Skruf glass bird?

then about 280026641029 on ebay ??? 'audubon wales' marked...where is that from? is this a glass manufacture?

I hope you can give me some advice...thank you very much

Nice this works...this forum, I mean, that I manage to communicate...I am not so very good with computers...:wink:

Hello Janine,
Hellsten is Lars Hellsten and the signature looks fine to me.
Enjoying being in the Midlands.......some people are just amazing....

This little bird is made by Liskeard Glass, Cornwall.  May be its like yours?
It has a sticker on the base with "LISKEARD Glass, Handmade in Cornwall" instead of the more usual mark of a letter L inside the letter G. http://i5.photobucket.com/albums/y195/glassie/Liskeardbird.jpg

It might even have this on the base underneath the sticker, but I'm not prepared to take it off to look though :P

My son just bought an owl this morning marked FM Konstglas Ronneby Sweden.  I haven't seen it yet, but will take a picture when I do. The only other bird I have, is this little Hoglund penguin.  Kind of cute isn't he :P  http://i5.photobucket.com/albums/y195/glassie/penguinbyHoglund.jpg

hello again
I still wonder what is better as a marked glass bird
the etched Skruf Hellsten mark or the label/sticker from Skruf?
how come that some are etched and others not with the name of Hellsten?

One book you really need is Glass Fact File A-Z by Ivo Haanstra. A very inexpensive pocket book containing information on virtually every glass maker.

I couldn't find anything here on Blarney, but Ivo might be able to expand further.

Hi Janine,

Try Amazon

THis is the UK site: not sure about a Belgian one, but someone else might be able to advise.

www.blarneyirishcrystal.com - the site may be temporarily or permanently down, I could not get it to work. But google Blarney crystal & you will get tons of hits, also of their retailers.  

re FC FRANCE - sounds like a moulded mark on Crystal d'Arques glass, where FC is the model...?
