Title: Need help identifying the maker of this please!
Post by: wit14beginner on June 17, 2011, 07:42:05 PM
Hi peeps - my first time on here, so do bear with me! I bought a small piece of glass which has on the bottom "Italy" and then a kind of squirly "b" embossed/etched in the bottom. I have attached a pic - I hope someone can help me find out (a) if it is of any note and (b) who it is by. Thanks so much.

Bormioli of Parma, one of the largest glass industries in the world. This is a frosted ice cream glass...
