Old Colony (Japan) 466571

I think they're 1970s/80s. Worst news is they pop up in charity shops everywhere - and tend to stay on the shelves.

But I'm sure you'd feel better if you saw the amount of junk I've bought over the years! Old Colony (Japan) 88711

I'll shift these posts in a bit - got to find a home for them first, as we've no Japanese or International glass section.

It's an easy error to make, there is a very similar Nanny Still design which is why these often get confused.
