Title: Green Table Ornament circa 1960 ID: Chalet
Post by: careh on May 02, 2017, 12:19:56 PM
I am looking for the name of what this style of green table ornament would be called.  All I know is they came from the 1960 era.  I see from the FAQ I was supposed to take more than one picture - sorry this is all I have for now.  Here are a couple of links to the photo of the item (I tried posting the photo but it was too large).

Google Drive is supposed to allow anyone to view the picture ... well that is the theory anyway...

Try this link:   http://i66.tinypic.com/34999mp.jpg

Ah! I found the problem - the first set of gdrive links i had in my first post were for a specific person. 

These 2 ...should... work for anyone:

thanks - all now o.k.

Regret this type of art glass/modernist style not my scene, but bearing in mind your location and the free form design do you think there is any chance this might be the States factory Tiffin?           In the fifties and early sixties they produced a line called 'Empress' which has some similarity in shape etc.  ..............  probably a long shot but worth mentioning.

Perhaps closer to home with Chalet glass?

Thanks for the tip on 'Chalet'.

I took a look on the bottom - and on the smaller one there is a word 'Chalet' etched in the glass.  The larger one has no markings at all & it's color of green is slightly different than the smaller one.
