Appears French or at the least continental, mould blown powder or small trinket bowl.

Has an enamelled rustic country scene in a woodland setting on frosted glass.

Measures 2.5 inches tall and 4.25 inches wide.

All thoughts welcome.

Possibly by Pierre Jost,  decorator in Belgium circa 1920s 1930s. There are several competitors though - Wirths among them.

Thank you for the info Ivo, greatly appreciated.

Its an interesting area even though my French is limited somewhat. I presume Carly would also be a possible contender, for the decoration..?

I found a little information on Pierre Jost online, (link below), I gather this is from a description of an exhibition dedicated to Pierre Jost back in 2009.

I notice in the link that Pierre Jost worked for Wirths before working independently in Dolhain, I was wondering if this town/area became a centre for this type of work/decoration?

Thanks
Greg

Correct - Carly is one of the other decorators.
I have the catalogue of the 2009 exhibition and would think Jost is most in the style. Carly is more transparent enamel in red, and many pieces are in a bad state. There certainly was no shortage of independent glass decorators at the time.

Thanks both for your thoughts much appreciated.  :)

Ivo, thanks for the info on Carly, I'll focus on Pierre Jost as the decorator. I presume more often than not, that most of this type of output would have been decorated on blanks supplied by the larger established glass manufacturers..?

I'll also bear Czech in mind as another avenue, thanks TC.
