Indiana goblet - King's Crown - but why the Russian?? medallion?

Hi all,
Picked this up out of curiosity yesterday and am pretty sure it is by Indiana glass - King's crown pattern (or thumbprint as it is sometimes called) Was wondering why the Russian badge?

Not sure about the medallion, but I thought this link might be a lead in the right direction

glassaddict:
Thanks for the link - that confirms that it is Indiana Glass as I thought and not Tiffin. Also it appears that it is a cordial and not a wine goblet. Was hoping to find out more about the metal too. Is it a Russian coat of arms? and was it put on by the manufacturer? and who was it done for?

Thanks for looking

vintagerose:
Hi, I did some looking. It seems that it is a two headed eagle. The problem is finding one like yours. Also I think your glass is brown more than amber. Perhaps you have a rare Adams & Co. piece? I would guess your glass was made to order, not production. Good luck : )

glassaddict:
Thank you for taking the time to look :) I have looked at Adams and Co and note that they merged with the United States Glass Company in 1891 and consequently that company was  bought by Indiana Glass so the jury is still out on this one. Could be any of them I guess.
