Glad to see you all are going to hang in there with me. Dirk don't pay attention to Paul if not already you are certainly aspiring to be a Bohemian glass specialist. ;) Thank you Mr. Moderator I believe you summed up the email just fine.

 I received a reply from Moser saying the glassware is made from the ruby glass overlay by white enamel. Unfortunately the Moser specialist has no idea from who these products might had been produced. I am waiting on replies from Bohemian-Glass works and the research department of Replacements, Ltd. The set that I found on eBay turned out to be considerably smaller than mine and have no marking on them.

 There is a local pawn shop here that has tested gold for me in the past would it be helpful to find out if the trimming on these pieces are real gold? Both sets have been confirmed to be crystal or at least crystal like(if there is such). The coins from the USSR that I mentioned in reply #7 are dated 1980- 81. These photos show the marks better. Now I am counting on our Bohemian glass specialist for my next move.

 P.S. Rosie check my paperweight post.

The gold used for gilding is almost certainly real gold - it generally is on glass, so there is no value in testing

A very similar piece for sale on Ruby Lane at the moment...it might be worth asking if there is a mark on the base:

 :) Always serious Paul,  ;)  and now I am even trying to learn more about other glass,  not just Animals & Birds.
I think this Bohemian glass is amazing,  not just the cut workfrom milk to ruby,  but the artwork as well.
Hope we can help you find the maker pnutsateup (can we please call you pnut?)

I didn't realise that gilding is always real gold Christine...I learn something new every day, so thanks for that info
