I was very excited to find this at the weekend  :o
stands 20cm (8") tall by 9cm wide at foot and rim.  The foot is completely hollow right up to where the bowl is joined on top and has a flat polished rim, bevelled edge on both inside and outside.

I'm a huge fan of overshot glass and I have particularly coveted some of these pieces on a certain website for a long time. I would have  loved Paul's Nautilus shells  ( linked below for future reference)   I believe they are from a similar era and also probably Bohemian and  they are remarkably similar in style to my goblet.  However this is a good second best  ;D  It sparkles brilliantly under lighting and is in fantastic condition and with no dirty patches.  

So, this is my new addition to 'my favourite pieces'.  I have found Spanish and French overshot pieces ( and some that are mentioned as 'Victorian English' but I wasn't sure they actually were) but none are the same somehow as this.  Bohemian feels right although I can't be 100% sure.

Keith it's not a glass I don't think. The rim (the bit painted gold) is slightly narrower than the body of the bowl and at 8" tall by 3 3/4" wide you'd be pretty drunk after one glass lol.  It may be a 'chalice' type thing, but I think it is just a vase.  The overshot is not 'over' crackle but it has 'crackled' slightly so possibly rolled in shards then blown out very slightly afterwards.

I have no idea about these sort of things but i was reading this post yesterday... http://www.glassmessages.com/index.php/topic,25682.0.html

There are one or two items there similar to yours, still no luck with attribution though.

Thankyou!! I remembered Max had some glasses but I could not find the thread for love nor money yesterday.
I thought they had been id'd as French? but I've found some Clichy pieces, and I thought the foot looked different so went off that idea...but that's not to say they couldn't be French I guess  :-\

there is 'La Cristallerie de Clichy' book available online in limited viewing, but having been through I cannot see anything definitive that would link mine.
There are references to overshot glass - 'Cristal Granite' (with an accent on the e) on pages 159,140,154,184,186,187.
