Not expert enough to be certain, but I think it is a nicely made Chinese Pwt.  Those ground, but not polished, bases seem to be typical of much of their work.

Having now sourced a copy of Pat Reilly's book I'm wondering if this could be by Midsummer glass? It has some similarities to the one illustrated on page 55.

The bottom would fit, but I've only seen Midsummer's apples and pears.

According to the book it was a very rare shape & method for them, I can't reproduce the picture of course and cannot find any images on the web. Hoping someone here may know a bit more.

Anyone have any other info or pointers for references to Midsummer glass,Never heard back from Dillon Clarke.
It still seems very similar to the item in Pat Reilly's book to me and I would like to try and confirm.

Nick?
