No problem, It also has a resemblance to some of the Beranek pieces, but the shape is not familiar and the pontil seems a little more polished than the examples in my collection....

Maybe Robert will glance at this one. Possibly a mod could put Beranek? in the title to draw his attention....

I will also check all of the early Beranek drawings I have and see if the shape is represented there.....

Thanks for the info Craig.My knowledge of Czech glass is limited,but over the years of not finding a Scandinavian I/D why not Czech?.
thanks again.

We will see what Robert says. I could not locate the shape in the drawings I have, but that does not rule them out in my mind. I also looked at the pontil marks on mine again, and a couple of them are cleaner than most of them. It is on examples which have more clear or translucent glass at the surface.  There appears to be a small space of clear at the rim of your example in the first pic.

Either way, it is an interesting piece of glass...
