From previous postings here it seems that glass items finished with metalware are very difficult to ID as far as the glassmaker is concerned. Often the metalware gives more clues as to age, maker etc
This piece may have involved 3 makers : glassmaker, cutting shop and finally metal smths/jewelers.
It may not be as old as it's meant to look.
The quality of the cutting looks good to me.
My guess would be Czech / German but thats just a guess.

Darlyn:
Thanks for the input!

EAPG:
Although the diamond thumbprint description is an accurate one, it would be misleading to sell your wine jug as the EAPG Diamond Thumbprint pattern.  You might use thumbprint or bulls eye or even diamond with thumbprint specifying that it's cut, and not EAPG.  This is probably a century later than that 1850 heavy rather primitive pressed pattern.  Some of these are Italian and I'd guess are still being made, although I haven't seen any with this cut pattern.  DoRi

RAY:
it could be german as the Bacchus grape was mainly grown there
