    I found this couple yesterday, taped together at the thrift. They have me stumped. There are no markings anywhere. Scandinavian? Blenko? Viking? I can't find anything close to them anywhere. Any help would be greatly appreciate.

    Oh, and the last picture is another paperweight I picked up. (assuming cave people are paperweights...they can stand up but not well) Opalescent sea shell. Don't think particularly old, just kind of like it.

    Maybe I picked up three paperweights as I have weight on my mind? Fatty December equals painful January...

      the female looks like a "venus figurine" but a modern version in glass.

      GSOwl, interesting. Maybe a new angle to pursue as I still am not close.
      Epson, you are so funny. Come to Chicago for a visit and ill show you my thrift stomping grounds...I'm sure there are other things to do here too.
      Thank you V, Tony and Sean...all thoughts or theories appreciated.

      Epsom, I was just joshing. Love Chicago!
      Hi Eye4! Looked at that angle too. No go. How you feeling? Cold gone?
      Would love to get that bucket out to you.

      I feel pretty certain they're not Blenko, Viking or some other US co. I'd be leaning heavily toward Scandinavian as well - some European maker, for sure. You might try posting pics on the glassmessages.com site - they're mainly focused on Euro glass and there's a good chance someone could recognize them or be able to give you something further to go on.

      Thanks Subversive. I am still at a loss but am absolutely leaning toward the Euro as well. I was thinking Viking for a short time because they often surprise me. I can't seem to find naked cave people anywhere : )))
      I will check out your website, thanks for the tip.

      Hubba, Hubba! These two are just too awesome!
      definitely have that Nordic look to them
    9. AmberRose AmberRose, 9 years ago
      Budek, I know, but can't find a trail on these guys.
      JayHow, thanks! Remember I went to five places with nothing to show for it, until I ran into these two. Lately I'm not finding much. Waiting patiently for spring cleaning season.

      I have an ID for you! One of the members of Modish posted a pic of the male figure with box from Royal Krona - I don't know if you're a member there, but here's a link to the post:
