I am on dialup still, oh so very very slow, so cannot see videos.  Can someone tell me what the video is and what the final anwer is?

Ian, part of glass mine was my first idea, I did not mean that it definitely is.
Here's another image of a different type:
blast mine

edited to add: google "glasmine 43" - lots of images

I waited until the end, but it didn't blow up. I didn't have the sound on, just in case.
It simply showed how it was assembled - this bit would just be the top, balanced part.
There was an ugly looking pot under it, with sinister paraphernalia in it.

Video shows how the mines are constructed and operated but I don't see yours fitting the bill. The above ground plate is much more substantial.

Also I do not think anybody would go to the bother to trade mark mines as the only ones that might see it would be the victim. Unless of course they were used in an area where the brand name was well known and someone thought "cooeee" buried storage jar  ;D

HI ,
            Still don't see the grooves extending through the edge of the glass as can also be seen in the second 1 illustrated , those grooves as shown in the video held the top plate off the glass cover/detonator switch using twigs. keeping all pressure off the internal glass plate till stepped on .

   boom boom

Glass mine.  Yikes!  Never heard of that before.  Thanks Pamela.

Hmm, possibly the grooves in the glass mine in the video might be "break here" lines, like the grooves on the American-style pineapple grenades, the better to fragment and slice up the enemy (or any unfortunate creature that wandered by.  Do you know where your kids are?).

I still can't get over SAVOR tho.  What's that all about?  "savor the carnage with our new line of SAVOR GLASS MINES"??

It has to be kitchen glass (so my pointy pink head thinks).  Jam thingy.  Technical jar lid thingy.

Savor would be an American kitchen. Here, in the uk, we savour our food.  ;D

Yes, you are right, it's the wrong spelling for a European trademark.  Nuts.  So it might just be meaningless.  Which would not be very helpful.
