on the foot of a large crystal wine glass, you'd swear it was a Riedel but for the mark.
Anyone?

 :-[ sorry. leaping before looking.  :-[
I have mistaken the Dartington mark for a B, several times, I've seen variations on it, and they do do quality stemware.
What does the glass itself look like?

large (holds half a bottle) crystal wine glass in the style of Riedel, stem bowl and foot made seperately. Sounds like Christmas when tapped  :mus: and has impeccable quality.  Will not burn your lips like ordinary glasses do....

Lucienne Bloch only ever did frosted kittens and suchlike, and Lanooy never made wine glasses as a matter of principle.  Leerdam marks were designed around the letter L and would not be found on a modern piece of quality tableware.  Nice try, but sorry no cigar.
