No-one likes general adverts, and ours hadn't been updated for ages, so we're having a clear-out and a change round to make the new ones useful to you. These new adverts bring in a small amount to help pay for the board and keep it free for you to use, so please do use them whenever you can, Let our links help you find great books on glass or a new piece for your collection. Thank you for supporting the Board.

thanks Neil - yes appreciate there must be millions of them out there, so the few Registered designs that I've shown are just the tip of the iceberg so to speak, and as I hope has been very obvious, it was never my intention to show unregistered designs for that very reason. :)

Any idea who the maker is? It's noted in McKearin/Wilson plate 106 #2. Frosted moonstone ca 1880. 3 long.  Thanks.
Corrections to misused or missed apostrophes should be forgotten if a post has been untouched for more than an hour. Otherwise I cannot resist finding the original mistake and wondering why I missed it first time around.  ;D

I am even worse with the misuse of apostrophes in plurals such as "photo's" ... I have to work hard at not editing them whenever they appear.

Somebody please report this post and ask me to delete myself.

Hi, I believe that this symbol, as stated in the thread, is the production symbol for the USSR 1958 glass designs that they provided for the Brussels World Expo.

Not that it makes any difference, or maybe it will ... but the logo wasn't just to be found on glass. The example I've showed comes from a matchbox  :D

Robert do you know what Poland would have exhibited under please?

Here is another with that label and an additional label.  Not sure about the quality on this and the photo is very bad

I have searched hundreds literally hundreds of Russian glass items in the Gus khrustalny exhibition and the Imperial Glass Manufactory as well as the online stuff at the Hermitage and two or three other museums in Russia. I have one book on Russian glass and one on Ukrainian glass from an old exhibition.

I've not seen anything like this that I can find in those exhibitions but I am sure it's Russian.
I think it might be Dyatkovo - but the only one I could find with any vague similarity (and that's barely there similarity perhaps just the rim and the fact it's stripey) and it's not as good as yours.
The piece in this thread is not Myers but likely Bohuslav Beranek for Skrdlovice from the mid fifties. It could be in the Rocco thread somewhere....

Thank you for the clarification Anik. I see your point, as you say, it is only Lorraine and Myers that had any link to Skrdlovice,
