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.
