Glass / Re: Is this Tango glass?
« Last post by blueglasslass on Today at 08:38:27 AM »
Thank you Anne! I've realised that Tango is a style and could have been manufactured by a variety if Czech companies. So I guess the query is, which company made it?  :) (it had a marble stuck inside which my partner heroically removed - it had been in there for decades! Soaking in warm soapy water, WD40 and finally super glue on end of pencil pulled it out!

Glass / Re: Is this Tango glass?

hi  -  regret tango glass not my thing, although there are folk here who do have some knowledge in that area of Czech glass   .................   but, the Mods. will probably shoot you - in the nicest possible way of course, because     .........            The system here, at least in theory, is to have one subject only per thread - as you can imagine, multiple pieces on one thread are confusing, and folk end up not knowing which piece we're talking about    -  hopefully the Mods will be able to split this most recent piece off to a separate post. :)

Here are the photos of what I think may be 'Tango' glass, again, the pics are small, but you might be able to tell? (Keeping fingers crossed!)
