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.

Always presumed these, first image, were part of the 'art glass' range until I came across this today, marked to the base  ::) ;D ;D

I have a bowl with a similar wonkiness (have we created a new technical term :-) ) that I purchased as a second from, I think, Stewart in Creif.

Germany / Re: Gebrüder Funk

This is a link to that article.

I have also seen a document written on company letterhead paper where the company calls itself Spezialglashüttenwerke Gebrüder Funk & Co.  I have seen an online partial catalog for Adlerhütten and what little else I have encountered seems to imply these Penzig companies produced mostly pressed crystal for a multitude of uses. Funk seems an exception ("special?").

The document showed that Funk was providing items to hotel gift shops and probably had a network of sales reps throughout Germany. Brochures or catalogs probably existed at some time - it sure would be nice to see one.   :)

Hi Della

Many thanks for your reply and being so generous in offering your help. I'm finding the Glass Message Board a very useful tool. We do have quite a lot of books including the 'Scandinavian Glass Fire & sea' one, but most books cover such a large topic, there isn't room for everything, and for Google search you do have to have some idea what you're looking for and be lucky. I usually come up with answers for most things but as we collect mid-century pottery as well as glass, there will always be gaps. This was our first trip to Sweden and we saw a lot of things we'd never seen before. We would have loved to bring back even more things as the prices in the charity shops were very reasonable, but we were flying.

Best wishes
Hi Jonas

Many thanks for your helpful reply. Much appreciated. Glaslykta = 'glass lantern' according to Google translate, so presume that means it came on a stand.

Best wishes
