glass blower mark ?
« on: September 28, 2006, 07:01:28 PM »
Good day all,

I believe I once saw this glass mark posted here, but I can not remember the thread title to do a search for any information shared. Would anyone happen to know who uses this glass blower mark on their glass?

Thank you for any help.

Hi Mike,

I hope my memory isn't playing tricks, but it suggests that this could maybe have something to do with the USA Corning company.  

Would that make sense?

Cheers,
Chris

All the corning marks had the blow tube upwards. I seem to remember it too, but then there are so many glass blower marks and they are useless terms for searching on GMB :shock:

Hi Chris,

Thanks for the reply. The only similar Corning logo I know of is a glass blower with his blow pipe pointed up in the air and that's only on a paper label I have.
