Except there it is plain as day. Maybe someone should have told whoever engraved it we were expecting a five digit or seven digit code...

Adam described it as having the 6 numbers, exactly as you did.   :-*
It does appear to be an unusual beast, we're not even sure what range it is, if it is part of an official range, or an unusual combination of two ranges.  ???

Thanks everyone. Still searching for a match - no reply from Kosta yet.

The six numbers baffle me.  The image in the middle matches an image in the middle of a Domino piece in the book I mentioned.  The style fits in with Domino as well.  I would stick by my earlier guess that this a later addition to the line. It's a production piece, btw.

Adam, are you Adam p? 
apologies for hijacking this thread but if so I've just posted on an old thread to ask if you can find some pictures to reinstate, that have disappeared from a link. They are of an art nouveau vase with applied pads and trails and with gilding on.
I've bumped it on the main glass board.
Many thanks and apologies if you are not Adam p :)
