Hi,

I have a very heavy piece of glass (lead crystal?) which is a completely solid rectangular pillar with a circular indentation at the top and level base.  It measures 19cm x 5cm. (photos attached)

Please could anyone tell me more about it?  I thought it was possibly scandinavian but it is unsigned and looks to be purely for ornamental use?

Many thanks

Candle-holder? It looks to be of some quality, but I haven't a clue who made it. :)

Many thanks Michael for identifying where this piece comes from and makers name. It is older than I thought (1960's)
