Kay
That is most interesting.
Could you please post pictures so that we may compare ?
It would seem even more likely now that similar patterns were made by more than one maker, though we still need more eveidence of the VSL connection.

For anyone interested in the top quality lead crystal by VSL see here http://www.mallettantiques.com/featured_item/val-saint-lambert/val-saint-lambert.htm

I am beginning to doubt that these are VSL uness Pamela can come up with something.
Looking closer at the Darvani site there is a section on recognition http://users.cybernet.be/darvani/Val_Saint_Lambert_Luxval.htm
with examples which says :

Quote
Les Luxval sont "généralement " signés en relief dans le fond. Il peut être écrit "Val St Lambert Belgique" comme sur la photo n°7 ou parfois uniquement le mot "BELGIQUE"  (photo n°8). Pour les productions plus récentes, simplement "VSL"  (photo n°9) et également "Val Saint-Lambert Belgium" .


Tanslation
Luxval are generally signed on the base in relief. It may be say "Val St Lambert Belgique" as in pic #7 or just "BELGIQUE" as in pic #8. For more recent production simply "VSL" or equally "Val Saint-Lambert Belgium".

The "generally" does leave space for some unmarked I guess but it would seem that none of the pieces shown here are marked otherwise this would have been noted. I have re-checked mine and nothing.

So the only marked ones we know about so far are those mentioned by Kay / glasswipe.

Thank you Kay
Very Interesting
The czechoslovakia mark seems very proiment ! and on the side of the base which I haven't seen before

It certainly seem to be related to at least some of the items alreadt shown.
The wings are a similar style to all except my large one.
Does the base have 8 sides ?

Peter, take a quick trip to my website and look at the article on Inwald's Jacobean. There a photo of a tumbler that shows the RD number moulded along a thin part of the side of the base. Amazingly fine work to have done that!

That's useful to see, thanks Peter.  One day we might get to the bottom of these patterns. :)
