iceberg

There is no particular shape to this - but it has obvious quality. Great quality crystal, well worked and I can only think it must be by a quality maker like Iittala or Kosta. For the time being I assume it represents an iceberg....
Your input will be highly appreciated.

I have no idea about it, but it reminds me more of a Glacier.....

Hi Ivo,
By chance I saw one of these this morning, with a sticker. It's Gibraltar Crystal - it is meant to be the Rock of Gibraltar.

Just one of those happy coincidences - I remembered the thread and the one in the charity shop still had its sticker ;D
I suppose the only "iceberg" is between the British and Spanish governments.... >:D >:D >:D
