Thanks for all your help.

I have looked at the mark for as long as possible and think it may be the remains of a label rather than an acid etched mark. The mark is permanent in the glass from what I can see and could only be removed by being polished out is that possible ?.

I have taken many pictures of the mark most with macro the best being below which I think is no better than the others

Thanks Roy

This model from VSL is called 'Alex' and yes, as you mentioned in your original post, it is from the 20ies.
I have got it illustrated in the catalogue 'Cristaux de Fantaisie' from 1926, i'll post a picture tomorrow, once I've taken a picture by daylight.

Here's the image from the catalogue ... obviously this is the clear doublé bleu version.
