Hi Lothar

A puzzle - good question. In my view, probably Dupont - but the canes are very clear and neat for Dupont. However, I do not recall seeing a classic Baccarat like this in respect of cane design.

Seeing this I would have thought a modern Baccarat from the colors and design, however I'd expect it to be marked.

It looks a bit too neat for Dupont as Alan mentions, could it possibly be a re-polished modern B where the etchmark has been lost?

Edit:

After posting the above I found this 1950'ies Baccarat on eBay, there are similarieties I think?

I would have said 1960's Baccarat. Probalbly not marked as acid etch began in earnest 1970.
