Welcome to the GMB.

If you can provide a photo of the mark this might help one of the experts to evaluate the item.

If you follow this thread it gives instructions on how to post photos or images.

Hello,

Without seeing the item I can only make a guess.

Other than Heisey's H in a diamond, the only other H mark that I know anything about would be on look-a-likes and reproduction items from Hsinchu Tiawan, for the A A Importing of St Louis  - 1940s-50s

There are three different marks by them that I know of, one is an H in a sideways turned square that many say is an attempt to fake a Heisey's mark, but that would be just too easy to do correctly and the marks side by side are very different looking. Besides that the items produced in Taiwan are nothing like anything Heisey's ever produced. Another mark is the same as above, with a few other elements added and the third mark is an H on its own. Luckily one of these items is found now and then with the red & white paper label still attached and all it says is; "Hsinchu Tiawan" on it. --- Mike

What about Hocking, i.e. before 1937. I'm sure I've something about the Hocking mark somewhere but...

Hello Lustrousstone,

Anchor Hocking Glass Corporation was created in 1937 by the merger of Anchor Cap and Closure Corporation and the Hocking Glass Company.

While I do know that Anchor Cap and Closure Corporation used the anchor mark (no H) before then, I don't recall ever hearing of a stand-alone (H) Hocking Glass Company mark. Do you have a reference for such a mark? I collect glass marks, so I would definitely be interested.

One other possibility is Hazel Atlas, which is a large H over a small A. Sometimes people think that one is an Anchor Hocking mark.

The mark that the Lorrie is asking about may just be an Anchor Hocking mark that didn't transfer well on to the item, but only a picture of the item can speak for itself.  --- Mike

Hi Lorrie, GlassGallery is telling you where the problem is - your images are too big.

There are two size limits - one is the 200kb max file size limit, the other is that an image's dimensions must be no bigger than 1000 pixels x 1000 pixels. Anything larger than either of these sizes will fail as you are finding.

Read the Help file link at the top of GlassGallery in BLUE for more info, but if you still get stuck feel free to ask for help... use the Contact Us form on the Help pages to do this.

Hello again Lorrie,

It is very hard to see the mark on your piece, but I tried enlarging your photo and then cropping out the area with the mark.

http://i3.tinypic.com/4ierspy.jpg

It looks more like an M or a W than an H to me, but the photo isn't great. I have seen a couple items in this pattern on ebay recently that were said to be Westmoreland's "English Hobnail" pattern, but I have never seen any Westmoreland items with that ladder like section in the pattern. They did do a somewhat similar looking puff box,

but it is still very different than your version.

Do you have a flat-bed scanner connected to your computer? If so could you just set the bottom of your piece on the glass and just scan it. You should be able to get a good sharp and close picture of the mark that way, rather than try and get your camera up close to it. --- Mike
