Try Johann Haviland Crystal, I don't think a real company but an old German pottery name that seems to be in use as a trade name with glass.

Nice link frank. I had heard the mark gets switched/moved around with the years.

Hello - did you ever definitively identify this mark? I have the exact mark on a gold-rimmed glass found yesterday at a market...
Thank you -
Kat

Mark will be owned by a factor who buys in the glass from anywhere.
