Hello again.  I found a set of these glasses.  The color of the glass has a smoked/greenish color of other Holmegaard pieces I own.  I believe I've come across this design in the past, but for the life of me can't remember where I saw it.  The lipped base looks very distinctive.  I believe these are champagne glasses, though I could be wrong (usually).  anyone have any thoughts?  The glass measures 3.5" inches tall and has a mouth opening of a little over 4" inches in diameter.

Looks more like a grapefruit dish to me, with the saucer-like base for the pips! Lots of makers made similar. But I can't be more helpful sorry

It's a common design for a grapefruit dish; sometimes the saucers are more curved but they were made by many companies.

It's funny, but I wouldn't even considered that it would be used for fruit.  It seems that the design for the lip in the stem is for the residue of liquid that would travel down the side of the glass after a sloppy sip.  LOL!  :P
