The picture is too small and the background is too messy to make out what it is. Clear glass is best photographed against a plain smooth dark background. Make the longest dimension 700 pixels when you resize a high res photo and you should be OK. You don't need to make a thumbnail; the board does that

Thank you, i shall give it a try. Its a very difficult thing to photo because of the texture of the base. It has a mottle bobbly kind of effect. There are no bubbles in the glass as it might look from the photos, thats just the base. Iv taken a couple more to see if that gives you a better idea. resizing is a problem for me, i cant manage that to get them the size you asked for. There are two tear drop shaped bowl-like parts on the left and a larger one on the right. I dont know how else to describe it really, iv never seen anything like it before. It weighs just over 1 kg
Thank you once again for your help and advice

If german, main suspects would be Georgshütte or Wiesenthalhütte.  :)
