Hi there

This is by Vicke Lindstrand LG stands for Linstrand Engraved
Not sure on date but the three digit code makes it early.

Hope that helps

... low numbers do not necessarily mean early: the LH and LU numbers - for example - just started at different levels.
LG 362 would have to be between about 1958 and 1962 (source: Glas in Schweden 1915-1960 )

By the way: her = his

Jeannette,

there's two other similar bits, LG360 and LG 361 - they look good together in the Kosta catalogue - Kosta engraved glass tends to be quite cheap on Ebay, so keep an eye out and you might be able to make up the set.
