Very thick/heavy, with a large sphere/bubble in base with a hole in the bottom, from where it was blown? I have never seen a glass with a hole in the bottom before. Please help ID

hi there and welcome to the gmb.

Identifying glass without a photograph is almost impossible but you did give a few clues. Very heavy points at Poland and an open bubble in the base points at Krosno. But we can only confirm this if you post a photograph.

I tried to load pictures with it yesterday, but i was unable to. I am trying to send one now. Computer says the file is too large. I only loaded one picture and it said that. The glass is oval shaped with the top cut off. It also has crescent moons and stars.

Or you could be looking at one of the polish oil lamps which stand on the flat bottom and have a little wick in the top reservoir.  As for resizing pictures, there is plenty of help on this forum.

You need to resize the photo, so it is smaller in size to upload. What photo program are you using?

Hello chickadee and welcome to the board.
To resize your pics very easily go here http://www.imageoptimizer.net/Home.aspx - enter 700 in each of the two dimensions boxes, leave quality as Normal, select file and allow the resizer to do its stuff. It should give you an image small enough to fit our limits whilst letting us see the detail. Shout if you get stuck and need help. :)
