ID help needed, probably Scandinivian

Post by speaktothequeen on February 4th 2015, 2:06 am

These are small bowls or coasters. Thanks in advance. I will post a picture of the hallmark in "reply". It shows what I think is a crown with two crossed lines underneath (sideways like an 'x') with lines writing on either side. Underneath this motif are two words. The first word shows fairly clearly in the photo. The entire hallmark is in an oval to one side of the base of the dish.

As a guess, seeing that he photograph isn't clear, perhaps Rosenthal.

Thanks RVsaid. The first letter in the word that shows is clearly g, then i, then a letter that may be h or m or n, then an i, then l or p or b so g i _ i _

Thank you so much RVsaid! Using your tip that was Rosenthal, I have been able to identify these pieces as Rosenthal Studio Linie Crystal ashtrays. The hallmark is backwards when the item is flipped over as it was meant to be read through the glass from the top, looking down. (Although this is almost impossible because of the thickness of the glass.) What I thought was a lower case "g" was a backwards "e". Thank you!
