New Gillinder Buddhas in more colors
Gillinder Brothers Inc. glass company has reissued their figural glass Buddhas more than once. The first reissues were only in cobalt blue; now emerald green has been made and other colors may exist.
The only difference between the new and 1930s originals is in the bottom of the base. Bases on originals are solid, flat and unmarked. Bases on new are recessed up into the figure and are marked in raised molded letters "Gillinder Glass".
