I have a large collection of airline wine glasses and recently came across this one...

Big version: Width: 600 Height: 800 File size: 37kb


While it certainly fits the style of inflight stemware, Im not sure if it even came from an airline... does anyone recognize this logo? It seems farmiliar, but I cannot identify it...

Thanks for the help!

It looks more like some kind of angel, or at least human with wings, to me.



Nothing's worse then flying the same registration twice, except flying it 4 times..

This is killing me... I think I even flew this airline but can't remember which one it is. I think it's one of vintage European airlines... Please someone answer!

The symbol looks like it is the famours Icarus from the Greek mythology.
it looks like British South American Airways , but not quite the same.
I hope someone recognize it

My guess would be VARIG, have a look at this photo and the winged logo near the nose. Also the "stars" match the VARIG compass logo....

That's a nice logo. I was thinking Suriname Airways.

The figure comes from Greek mythology:

I can see now why they got rid of this logo.

Thanks for the answer! It will probably be the oldest glass in my collection then!

So, about what time period would you say this glass was used?

Thanks again!!

Well any time between the early sixties when the star was introduced to the corporate identity and 1997 when the new corpoate identity did away with the Ikarus. They had the same livery for about thirty five years! Maybe the loss of the Ikarus was their downfall. Things started going bad for them after that, didnt they?

Varig is certainly a strong contender, however, depending on it's age, it could POSSIBLY be from the ill-fated British South American Airways, (BSAA) of the 1940s? They had a similar "Starman" logo and "Star" names for all it's aircraft?

Yes they seem to have had an Ikarus logo too but the liitle man is a bit different on theirs with triangular wings little bigger than arms and extended back like arms. The Varig one has bird like wings and a forward facing torso like the image on the glass. Their logos dont seem to have changed much during their use by the airlines.

I don't think it's a Varig glass I think it's just a glass that happens to have an Ikarus graphic on it. The Varig logo and the glass graphics do not match at all, and in the business world the logos you print are typically identical across all types of paraphernalia and stationary.

I also don't think this is Varig logo - somehow it reminds me of some British or northern European vintage company.

I've searched some old timetables and couldn't find it, but I could almost swear I've seen this logo.
