well, at least you've learned how to recognize pressed glass - although it doesn't always come with a diamond lozenge mark  -  the majority of pieces you will see have a just a number (accompanied with a trade mark, occasionally), and as the Readers Digest used to say ....'it pays to increase your word power', so time to get a few books Craig. :)          Presumably you don't have any at present, so guess you're unable to decypher the data within the lozenge.       Pressed glass has a big following here, so if you wish to know about your piece, tell us the details and someone is sure to be able to help. :)
As you can imagine, compared to the potential value of an early C19 drinking glass made by The Cork Glass Company, this is rather a non starter, so hope you aren't too disappointed.
