Help Needed Identifying Logo (Airline?)

Mon Oct 03, 2005 3:27 pm

Hello Fellow A. Netters:

I collect vintage airline mementos as well as airline glassware. I recently acquired a glass that I believe is airline-issued, but I need some help establishing which airline's logo it is. The glass stands about 4 inches tall and appears to be a wine or champagne glass with a Euro-design to it. It has a round base and the glass curves up from the base, so it lacks a stem. The etching in the glass resembles a seahorse, but not like the traditional Air France seahorse logo. It has a clearly identifiable mane and a tail that points upward, resembling a racoon's tail. There are ten small stars that hover above and around the creature. I have never seen this logo and was hoping that one my very astute fellow A. Netters could assist me in identifying the origins of this unique glass. Thank you.

Signed,

Ia Orana airline Geek !!!

You are right. It is the logo of our old crockery that you will still find on glasses and cuttlery. The crockery has recently changed and the stylized seahorse has disappeared.
