looks as if bowl, stem and foot were made seperately so it is not that old. It also looks as if the foot was finished i  a clapper, making the foot perfectly round and even. I would guess from the construction 1930s through 1950s

Thank you.  :) I suspected it was a cocktail glass but it is very weighty and different to regular cocktail glasses. I was hoping to find out its provenance but I realise this is fairly impossible.
