It's quite odd, isn't it?  Looks like a matchstriker although the internal tangerine-ish colouring and bubbles looks too modern for one.   :huh:

Thanks for replies,and compliment Bernard,the mark on the base is for 1950-66 and the inside is smooth,the cutting on the outside doesn't seem rough enough to use as a striker,it flares out to much for a candle holder however it is very heavy for its size and the glass is so hard you can understand why the term metal is used(I know all glass is hard this just feels hard,I'm not explaining this very well am I)Keith.

Experience teaches that anyone who begins to collect in any field can feel a change in his soul. He becomes a joyful man filled with a deeper empathy, and a more open understanding of worldly things moves his soul.    (Alfred Lichtwark 1852 1914)
