... the third picture is a bit blurred so doesn't show the finishing. Doesn't have an acid-etched mark ?
... depending on quality and quality of finish: A.D. Copier for the Leerdam Glassworks / The Netherlands

sorry base so difficult to photograph...it has a small area in the middle that is clean and the ring around that has been polished but has many scratches.....no etched mark...sadly...but i still feel it is a good piece.
thanks for looking

Copier "spijkerbol" ("spike ball") candlestick. Made in hundreds of thousands from the thirties through the sixties - every household in Holland had one. Not rare but collectable. Monogrammed copies are more desirable than unmarked ones. Taken back into production abt. ten years ago - but old ones are cheaper. You can pick one up at markets here for 35-85 Euros.
