That is a piece of Austrian glass in the shape of Austria by Steirisches.

Thanks Ross,  I have seen a couple of glass maps from Scandi companies,  but didn't recognise your Austrian one.  I don't think I have any Austrian glass.....but it has made me think.....is Bleikristall Austrian?.....off to find out!!

Hi Ross (IMHO) I don't believe the plate is a Monart piece. Monart did not do that shape with an inverted lip, though Vasart and Strathearn did.

Ross, that is the part of Austria I am coming from! :D

It isn't the shape of Austria, but that of Styria in the South-East of Austria (easily recognizable by the piggy shape ;D), "Steiermark" in German, so "Steirisches Glas" means Styrian glass.

Never heard of that maker, but Oberglas Bärnbach is in Styria...

Thank you for all opur contributions.

Gary - I started a topic http://www.glassmessages.com/index.php?topic=47412.new;topicseen#new and lo and behold it is actually early Mdina - 1970 - 1972 I am told.  A most pleasant surprise as it was simply a 'like it' buy on Ebay.

Michael - I am fascinated that I now know someone from that area.  I will be Googloing to find out more.

The sun is streaming into the livingroom this morning on to my shelves and bring some more colour into my glass.

Thought this is stunning example of a Mdina Side Stripe deserved a few pictures.

Pictures 1,2,4 taken with flash and Picture 3 without for comparison,

Enjoy
