Was surprised to see than there are No posts here on CW for SEETUSEE GLASSWARE from Canada. I guess this is the first for CW. Ebay has them on there, but none on here.....So Enjoy!!
Small ruffled bowl of many colors with it stamped mark on the back. It's number is M72. It is about 5.5 inches across, and 1.25 inches tall. Please NOTE: All true Canadian made ( Portage La Prairie, Manitoba, CANADA ) are painted Gold on the back of the Pigskin Backing -- YES, true Pigskin.
I have about 5 pieces here, so check out those posts. No two are truly alike as the colors on the front would always vary.
Here is some info/link on this Glassware from the site of CANADIAN DESIGN RESOURCE [quoted below]:
""""Seetusee was a glassware manufactured in Portage la Prairie, Manitoba, Canada from 1960 until 1975...........All Seetusee pieces are unique as they were hand painted, cured and carefully sealed with a pigskin backing with a distinctive finish of gold paint that sets them apart from Mexican pieces. The colours are mixed, exciting and vibrant and have stood the test of time. Like many styles of art or craft they have gone through periods of popularity and decline. Each of the huge variety of shapes are identified by a number (with or without an ‘M’ prefix) stamped on the pigskin backing. The brand (Seetusee by Mayfair Glass) is also named on the backing, either in the form of a stamp or via a sticker label.
Look out for them, they are very beautiful and are becoming quite collectible.""""
