No-one likes general adverts, and ours hadn't been updated for ages, so we're having a clear-out and a change round to make the new ones useful to you. These new adverts bring in a small amount to help pay for the board and keep it free for you to use, so please do use them whenever you can, Let our links help you find great books on glass or a new piece for your collection. Thank you for supporting the Board.

Having the right books is a great aid in identifying glass.

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 :)
