Not convinced (but a v nice piece of glass).
Here's a good comparison:

It's interesting to put the pictures side to side and note the differences, especially in the curve of the top.

Is there a colour tint to the glass ? (in my limited experience with Stromberg, the glass has tended to either be water clear or very slight blue tint - your pictures look more silver grey tint ?)

Thanks 'Taylog' very similar to the piece on the link.Have a piece of Strombergshytten (marked) and the colour is the same,clear from the side and 'ice-blue' looking into the top,difficult to photo,ta,
