This tankard or mug is not Slag Glass, I think it is milk glass. I have been unable locate another piece like it. It has a symbol inside. I have tried to decode the symbol. Did I do it correctly? I contacted the Canadian Hall of Fame in Toronto to learn more about my piece they have a Slag Glass tankard or mug on display. I have seen many Slag Glass tankards/mugs but not one like mine. My mug has no chips or cracks and has been in the family for as long as I can remember. Probably someone was at the big event. I am looking for the following information:
A picture of another tankard or mug like mine online or in a book someplace so I can view it myself (it has to match mine not sort of but exactly)
How many in a batch?
What company produced them and where? (my guess in England but what company)
Are these tankards or mugs more scarce than slag glass if so why?
What is the approximate value?
I probably have more questions but that is what comes to mind right now.
The Boy in Blue, movie (1986) starring Nicolas Cage whom portrayed the backwoods Canadian bootlegger Ned Hanlan into a world-class rower.
Ned Hanlan did come to the States and I believe he taught at Columbia University, he married, and had six children. I wonder how much of his legacy lives on today? I personally am a fan in need of information regarding my antique.
Thank you, bellapicker
