In first reply to Ian.

Trademark Savor seemed to belong to a Jam or jam-jar supplier E. Hebert of Paris.

Oh and their advertising shows normal Kilner type jars so perhaps this is just an advertising tray. Here is a postcard on ebay http://www.ebay.com/itm/APPAREILS-ET-BOCAUX-SAVOR-8-RUE-TURBIGO-PARIS-eTABLISSEMENTS-SIDNEY-HEBERT-/271076551413?pt=FR_JG_Collections_Cartes_postales&hash=item3f1d6beaf5

Unfortunately most jars are offered in lots described in a truly useful gallic fashion loosely translated.... "Old Jars, various sizes, marked or not."

Trademark for jam is still in use but by a company that has not been around long and for a brand of jam. Unfortunately the French database does not give expired trademarks...

Still on a foodie theme, I have an unfortunate tendency to assume all flat round glass thingies like this are those doofers for stopping the milk boiling over.
I don't think this is one of those. 
I would not trust jam labelled "savor".   8)

The Folembray site does not include it with insulators but on it's own as a trademark... but seemingly not of the glassworks who also did disks with their tm/names etc.

Seemingly not of the same glassworks?  Why?  It has a pretty typical Folembray green color, and it looks like their typical good quality work.  Color formula would be easy enough to specify to a glasshouse I suppose, so that's no proof.   ???

I like the bottom-of-the-pot anti-boiling thng idea.  But in the end, it looks like it would serve as a battery rest, too.  Folembray certainly made a wide variety of electrical glass.  I have a beautiful little glass cleat from them, taken from the factory walls itself I was told (i.e. it was in use once).  Love that green.

Same glassworks but Savor was a client's trade mark, not the glassworks. Wrong shape for the bottom thingy and much to big.

Could be something really boring like a spoon rest.   I'm definitely stuck on kitchen.  Unless the glass is borosilicate, it would probably not be a trivet.

Yes, SAVOR is spelled wrong, but very possibly SAVOUR was already taken.  I need a set of Babson Bros. Kwik Klips, what horrid spelling, (Kozy Korner!), but likely Quick Clips was already taken; you see those deliberate misspellings all the time, forming new trademarks.

and then folk who don't pay attention in the classroom, but who do read advertising, start using the ghastly spellings in daily life. Drives me potty.

Gladly admit Ian's item is not part of a weapon  :-*

Frank, this one is clearly marked Ankerglas Bernsdorf
