very nice piece of glass even if i say so my self, but whom made it, and around what year, if you have an idea please share with me, thank's ;)

Steve,
Please remember, not all the experts are here, all the time. I know that someone will have the answer, but it could take rather more than 48hrs for them to turn up on the board.
imho, this item unlikely to be Holmegaard, but then I'm no Holmegaard expert... ;D ;D
regards,
Marcus

I've seen similar things from Maastricht, but I will not attempt this attribution. I have one of these in green, and one of them in red, these are loitering in the "generic Murano" section, until such time as someone finds out what they really are. They could be Reijmyre or Aseda - or even Czech.

In any case, I would describe it as a bowl, not an ashtray. Ashtrays are impossible to shift and clutter up your house, bowls are much friendlier in that respect. 

Tip: to stretch the capacity of your shelves, concentrate on glass with a small footprint...

I do think it's generic Murano.

I have one with blue instead of green and no indents, but otherwise very similar. Again, not marked in any way. So now we know they come in red, blue and green - any more colours? :)
