I have seen lots of unmarked ruby and cranberry vases of this shape, but never one before with a mark, can anyone help to identify this manufacturer please?

The vase is at:

the mark is at:

It wasn't that easy to photograph so I hope the pic is high enough resolution.  If not, please let me know and I'll try to get a better one.
Thank you very much!

Yes, that is the mark for Anchor Hocking.  You have it pictured upside down.

The vase is from the Royal Ruby line.  There was a thread on these vases here several months ago.  I am traveling again so can't give more details but i am sure other members can.

If I know, I'll comment. If I think I know, I'll have a go. If I have no idea, I'll just keep quiet and learn from others, so the next time I'll know.

Answer for the Anchor Hocking vase in Ruby,The mark is for THE ANCHOR HOCKING GLASS CO. of Lancaster,Ohio, USA. Factory- 1906> present. The mark you show is from pieces dated between 1937-77. I have several pieces of Anchor Hocking,one which is the twin of yours!
                                                   Hope this helps
                                                   Best wishes from Urchin.
