I got out my magnifying glass and went over the entire piece again. I can find no other marks or stamps of any kind.

The glass itself looks as if it might be that lovely stuff using silver nitrate by Tadeusz Wrésniak or the later comission stuff by Hortensja?
Possibly even the really fabby earlier stuff. I can't track down the correct thread where it was all being discussed - and it came up recently too.  :-[
Examples here.

While the marks may be relevant to the silver, sadly they are not neccessarily related to the glass part of it, either by date or by maker.While the marks may be relevant to the silver, sadly they are not neccessarily related to the glass part of it, either by date or by maker.

But it may help with the country of origin if you are lucky.

I don't know.  ???
When I click on your link I get a big notice telling me that Glassmessages is an untrusted site - and gives me the option only to "Get me out of here!"

But I got round it. I know I can trust you lot, can't I?

That's the one, Mike. Thanks.  :-*

I sent pics of the ewer to the "Just Answer" antiques expert. Unfortunately they could not indentify the ewer either. They think it is either Finnish or Norwegian, but notr sure of that either. This just makes the quest more interesting. Hope one of you recognise it!

I had wondered WMF as a possibility.
I know they did do a lot of Nouveau metalwork, and the glass is not desperately un-WMF-like.
But I'm no WMF expert, and I would have thought if it were a serious contender, others might have mentioned WMF before me.  :-\

Forgot to mention that if the metalwork is extremely well defined it might be pewter since it seems to cast really well.  If it were silver I would expect markings even if it is quality plate.

hi Ross  -  in view of the op's comments in reply No. 9 - it would seem to be silver rather than pewter.             From experience when cleaning silver, the colour produced is most definitely black  -  whereas pewter doesn't give the same effect (I've just tried it).

From my limited knowledge of silver/plate, I thought that most of Europe included marks/Nos. of some description on silver  -  so in the complete absence of any marks might this indicate the Far East??
