Is it Chinese

I think this is Chinese, but i have never seen one with the top cut off if you know what i mean? a bit like taking the top off an egg.

Hi,
I have this one: http://glassgallery.yobunny.org.uk/displayimage.php?pos=-6476 that is Bohemian with the same top cut.
Yours does have something that looks bohemian but overall I dont think it is ???
Kind regards,
KarelM

The colour in your's Karel are much brighter, mine seem's a bit wishy washy  :-\ the glass has a pinkish tinge to it also.

Forgot to mention it is 3in high  and 3in wide.

Hi,
Mine is just under 3in high and just over 3in wide weight about 1,1kg which is heavy for size.  Also mine has a lot of little pit marks that do not look like chips but rather bad manufacturing.  Also what is your base like.  Mine is flat polished and perfectly round, as you know, most chinese basis are not round or not perfect.

Good grief Sue, 666kg? That's way heavier than an average person (=104.877048 stone according to Google) - I think the devil has got into your scales... should it be 666 grams?  ;D

Hi again,
Is it possible that the top was done after production.  Meaning it was manufactured and at a later date somebody else decided to either repair it by giving it the chop or thinking it would look better?
Kind regards,
