I like this shape - it's hollow right down to the foot. Would hold almost a bottle of wine if used as a glass. :roll:

Nice for a nibbles holder though, but who makes them? (the glass not the nibbles!)

Looks Scandi or possibly Dartington-ish; not much wear to base, no pontil, no ID marks at all. It's quite tall - almost 8 inches tall, lovely clear glass and a bit of a ding to it when tapped.

Does anyone recognise the design please?    http://yobunny.org.uk/gallery1/displayimage.php?pos=-643

It has a Holmegaard-ish shape to it... but I'm no expert.  :lol:

If I had to vote between either Dartington or Scandi, I'd vote Dartington as I don't recognise this overblown upper shape as particularly Scandi.  Having said that, I'm not sure it's Dartington either.   :oops:

8" is big though isn't it?!  A mystery item indeed!   8)

My feeling is more Dartington than Scandi but I don't know why really.  In the absence of hard evidence I'm comparing it with other known pieces in a hunt for clues.  :roll:

it seems to whisper Krosno to me - clear, heavy, functional, fine quality semicrystal, unfrivolous.....

Oooh Ivo, that's a thought. I hadn't considered Krosno for this, thank you. It does have some similiarities to the Krosno pieces I've seen so I'll go rummage and see what I can find. I was only talking Krosno with Peter last night as well!  :oops:
