Hello,

With my limited knowledge of this style of glass I would have looked at three companies WMF (not Myra or Ikora), Leerdam, and one that no-one has mentioned Midsummer Glass, Cambridge, UK. Can't remember their dates, but their are no longer functioning to my knowledge.

Nigel

James Measell already said it was not, early on in the discussion.....

Yes I did and only find confirmed that this piece is not by Eisch - I also have an identical piece to the one questioned for comparison, as well as Leerdam, Gralhütte, Maastricht and WMF pieces - so I can confidently state these are off the menu. Have you tried to google images on stretch glass? You'll find credible pieces by Imperial, Northwood, Jeannette and Fenton. If James discards Fenton (missed that...!), my next choice is Northwood.

I commented earlier that after contacting them, Dave and Renee Shetlar provided information early on that they did not recognize the piece as American production. Their knowledge of American stretch is pretty comprehensive.

In light of that, I think any continued attempt to identify this should be directed towards non American companies...

Poschinger made many different colors of glass. the company is still in business. you can try emailing them with a photo of the piece. this is very typical of poschinger IMO. Also American stretch glass did not have polished pontils. they had no pontil mark at all.

I'm pretty sure this is WMF Perlmutter (mother of pearl) glass.  A very nice piece.
