Hi Frank
Flensburg is a curious town, located on the Baltic sea, if you pass through the town, and thru passport control it seems to continue on the Danish side of the German border. Did Flensburg have a glass works? this looks to me like a municipal piece rather than a tourist piece. It may well have been made across the border. Kev

Only a bottle works, not even a glass cutter in town!
Quote from: Glass-Study
171. Heye, H., Glasfabrik in Flensburg (), Prov. Schles­wig-Holstein (Preußen). 80, TA: Heye, Flensburg. Inh.: F. C. H. Heye, Hamburg. GeschĂ€ftsfĂŒhrer: W. Vol- quardsen. Postscheckkonto: Hamburg 1207.
Fabrikat: Flaschen. (Gegr. 1852.)

In the winter the sea would freeze over and you could walk over to Denmark. But this lump could have easily been made in Bohemia or Denmark too.
