Glass Matchstriker Controlled bubbles-help with maker please
« on: September 29, 2006, 07:26:17 PM »
This matchstriker has a concave base with an etched makers mark.
Difficult to photograph- 'Made in England' surrounding a figure  ? glass blowing or  furnace.
help please.
There is age wear on base.

Sorry to bump this back up.
Did Whitefriars make matchstrikers?
The base is concave between the flat rim  and I find it difficult to photograph.
Did Whitefriars mark have a monklike figure glass blowing centred with 'Made in England' surrounding- or is my imagination working overtime.
I cannot find information about their backstamps on the Whitefriars site and my attempts to join up failed!!!

Whitefriars.com has a page of labels and marks here:
http://www.whitefriars.com/labels - I cannot help you with whether your piece is Whitefriars or not though, perhaps one of the W/f folks on the board can offer more info.

Thank you Anne.

I will have to try to get on their board again.
