Hi Lesley and welcome! It's good to have another Australian here, particularly a carnival enthusiast!

Hi Cathy,
  thankyou for the welcome, yes I am a carnival addict, keep saying I must not buy any more, but when I see a piece I do not have cannot help myself, not saying I always get it but I try.Just love the European and Australian, I also have some Crown Crystal in clear glass that also come in carnival, and do have a couple of depression pieces.
Lesley.

Hello Lesley,

Glad to be of help, it's just a shame that the symbols don't reveal any more. We've had a look through a number of Chinese sorces but unsurprisingly can't find anything on the web referring to a glassmaker of that name. We will travel to China later in the year, however, and will try to investigate a few other avenues, though records for this period are likely to be patchy at best.
