My thought was to flip the pontil so that I effectively looked through it from the neck of the bottle.  That seems to show a name '???EUS' (see attached) I am wondering if looking at it through the pontil shows a better result given that refractiojn & reflection make it hard for me to make a better guess.

It doesn't say anything - flipped or unflipped, it's still the mark used on Guernsey Island Glass. (UK Guernsey Island Glass, not US Guernsey Glass) . See the photograph of the label on the marked paperweight. It's the same company, same label, same pontil mark.

Just in case anyone's wondering, the three lions are taken from Guernsey's official Coat of Arms.
