 spoke to a glass dealer yesterday, he said this item could possible be wedgwood the top is very much on the wedgwood basis, but has never seen a twisted stem..it could be a rare one off item...as glass-blowers made many one off's and never signed. :)

It's not an uncommon form, so unless you can find the person who actually made it, you are never going to prove it's Wedgwood. Wishing doesn't make it Wedgwood.

You never told us what the rim is like, despite being asked twice.

Several other well-respected glass dealers have cast doubts about it's origins.

I don't think the top bowl bit is anything like Wedgwood, it's not nearly so well made (from what I can tell from the pic. - the base part is too thick and the angle between the walls and the base part is far too rounded.

If the top rim is bevelled as well as polished, I'd be more inclined towards a Wedgwood oddity, but as Christine said, it's a common enough style.
Is the top rim bevelled?
(This means that it is not simply polished flat, but has a tiny polished angle at each side to make it less sharp.)
