with a roughly ground and unpolished bottom like that chances are slim that it is by a well known glass maker. You will probably find the country of origin is China, Poland,  Romania, one of the Baltic states or the Ukraine. But you are right - it is a stunning piece of glass, which would have been stunninger if it had been properly finished.
