Modern, by the look of it and maybe not so much a reproduction as a modern version of a crystal goblet.  These have been made by many companies, e.g. Wedgwood and Leerdam - but there must be others too. I know of similar items made in Poland and in Denmark....  In Holland they were very popular as business gifts so we tend to find these with council or business logos engraved.

Hi ,
           Looks to me like a 20thc version of an 18thc goblet from the  Lauenstien,or Hessen,glasshouses , the form is very much like their's and they commonly had controlled bubbles in the base of the bowls in the 18thc ones.and are still producing them  in large numbers today .

Cheers ,
            Peter.
