there's nothing remotely undesireable about pressed glass Adam - the only down side, as you say, is its commonplace - ness (?), which means it's all too easy to acquire a house full. Charity shops and boot sales were, until a couple of years back, awash with the better stuff i.e with Rg. Nos. and diamonds, but those days have gone, unfortunately. And if it was only pennies, then so much the better, and you learn a lot about glass by collecting the pressed pieces. I also once collected sugar bowls, along with celerys, butter dishes, biscuit barrels, bowls, salts, but you have to draw the line somewhere - so the unmarked material went, and I have kept only the better pieces. Sorry, but I'm still not seeing your 'V' very well at all - I can't seem to blow the picture up. I take it you've done a search on the GMB - never know what will turn up. Whatever the age/maker, you're right, it is impressive and attractive, and that's what really matters.
