Almost certainly Bohemian (not Czech, too old)  late 19th/early 20th century. One of the better decorators certainly. This sort of glass was often made in one factory and decorated by another company (possibly by home workers).

Base shots help. I'll have a look when I get home.

You'll be getting unpopular for flooding the board. None of us minds answering questions but 3 or 4 requests every few days gives someone else a chance to get their question answered before it falls off the bottom of the page.

I'm getting confused with the number of queries you're posting - I keep looking at the same ones I know nothing about, over and over, I'm possibly missing ones I might be able to say something about, and I'm loosing other folk's posts.....

Can't find the shape in my books. What's the base like?

This looks like a ceramic piece, not glass!

I assure you with the present state of my catalog showing 769 glass objects - IT IS GLASS!!!!!!  ::)  Yes I do have a lot of the other stuff as well.  8)

The actual glass of the body is quite thick - 3 to 4 mms.  So I can to some extent understand your concerns with its appearance, BUT...

It's the base that's of concern. An item like this would be mould blown and would generally have a flat (ish) base straight from the mould with a ground or fire polished rim or a pontil mark of some sort. This sort of base is generally seen on pressed glass or something with an applied foot. It wouldn't be the first time that one of the more knowledgeable people on here had been fooled by a ceramic item.

I have never seen a base like that on glass, but have on ceramic. It could possibly be a piece of thick bone china.....   The base has the look of a fired piece.....

Personally, I would be quite surprised if it is actually glass.....
