I don't know what you're really asking when you write 'help' here. But the type shown is a typical gift-souvenir piece sold in Sweden to tourists . They are seldom signed by the artist as they are a commercial issue. If you wish to know the first year of issue, approximate retail price when issued (in Sweden) and, if available, the name of the artist you can contact Kosta Boda in English here and they'll probably give you a very courteous reply: www.kostaboda.se

Chris, I can't be sure that it is KOSTA BODA or not. If you contact the co. from their website I'm sure they'll tell you.

Whitefriars also sold lumps of cullet - some of them have ended up engraved.

The best are by Lesley Pike!  ;D

You can see a couple of examples on the right hand side of the page here - scroll down a little.

I am wondering if the name could be Dostal.  Ladislav Dostal engraved glass in Australia in the early 70s (I have two items one of which is an angelfish - although slightly different from yours).  Apparently he worked in Norway before coming out here.

I would suggest that you could take a photo at a shallow angle (see two I have of the the same Kosta Boda base below).  This method removes all of the background distortion and the signature is often much easier to read.

I'll put some more photo's of the signature up a bit later today, the base is so badly worn it will be tricky i might take them in day light, the wear looks like something a 200 year old piece of glass should have, some lovely pieces of glass on that Lesley Pike website improved my late break at work and cheared a dreary morning up.

I'm glad you enjoyed Lesley's work.
She is a bit special.  ;D

It's "Endangered" I want.

I have taken a few more photo's of the signature on this piece, the only way i could was to hold it hence the reflections.
