ID question (for fun)

Hi.  Who do you think made this piece?  Clear glass, four air twists.

I will give the answer in due course (though the keen eyed may work it out...).  ;D

Looks like the Liskeard Glass insignia in the base.

Just for comparison - and I am not implying it's the same manufacturer !

I'm sure Trevor is right Alan,  Liskeard Glass.
I have seen one of these with a quad air twist, and the quality looks just as good as that one.  :)

Yes - Trevor is correct.  From a distance I thought 'Chinese' - then I saw the label on the side, and the stamped and dated base.
