Thank you for contacting the Rakow Library. Attached is a bibliography of information about the Summit Art Glass Company that I hope will be helpful for your research. I did find several articles with the Summit mark, which was a V in a circle. However, as one article indicated, they also used the paper labels, the previous glass company’s mold marks or no mark.
Found an article that uses the hand symbol which is attached, citation below. The web link below also has the hand. I checked the 2 catalogs that we have on microfiche and they do not have a trademark on them.

Art Glass) Story.” Summit
The Antique Trader Weekly, Annual of Articles on Antiques, no. 7, 1977, pp. 60-61, ill.
Have a few other references that will be sent by separate email because of size.
If you are interested in any of the resources from the bibliography, you can request them through interlibrary loan from your local library. All of the Rakow Library materials are non-circulating and must be read in a library.
Please let us know if you need any further information.
