Hi all
I am now stuck on this one and would be grateful for some help  ;D.
The goblet is made from clear glass with a twang of blue/grey. The base has a slight outer lip which it sits on quite steadily with a very smooth indent in the centre.
On the base is the letters H G L (I think anyway), im never sure of which type but its either engraved or etched or diamond point ?? in a hand written style.
The base lip shows good dull wear so its not new.
It stands at 14.5cms tall, 7.5cms base diameter, 7.25cms rim diameter
So far all i can come up with is Heraut & Guignard who signed HG who had bought out Leveille in 1906 signitures HG and Le Rosey art glass and tableware (many thanks to Ivo's book Glass fact file). But I cant find any examples of there work or signatures.
Obviously i could be well off the mark with this and the glass is probably something completly different.
Any ideas
many thanks in advance
michelle

Holmegaard would be my guess.

Yup, Holmegaard. 'Jægerglas' series designed by Per Lütken in 1974 - probably a white wine glass.

The signature on the base is 'HG6', which is the production date code for 1976.

See for a guide to Holmegaard markings: http://www.holmegaardresource.com/labels_signature.html

thanks so much Nic, that was fast. I hadnt even got to the holmegaard section on my saved websites in that time.
Lovely glass, nice and chunky with a good weight, will have to keep my eye out for another 3 now  ;D
And thanks to Christine too you was spot on also
