Yes it is earlier than 1940,  the American 'Fantasy Crystal' catalogue dates 1919-1930 and the French version has 1926 on it, but there are some pieces in it that date back to 1920, that got included in it. I've got several examples on my Pinterest page ... sorry, I'm not advertising myself but it's all there ... just search for Val St Lambert and you should come across it. If I need to translate, just let me know....

Back to that site, for instance the mentioned 1926 Fantasy Crystal catalogue, which is dated 1908 and incorrect on this site .... I only get three pages on my screen and nothing opens or happens when I click on anything, so I must be doing something wrong?  ???

ah, I can't do pinterest I'm afraid - it insists I enter details and sign up so I refuse :)

Thank you Christine. I try to add as much info possible to each piece ... to sort of create my own reference material ...

I have never managed to get the Corning version but there's a preview page with the very long link underneath... sorry, for that... would appreciate it if a moderator could change it to a shorter link ...

And if you try again at some time, another part comes up, which is a different preview, both together just under 100 pages.

not sure if this is the same shape - it looks slightly different but perhaps photo angle?
Also have no idea if id is correct but appears to be three layers.

Looks as though it has been a 'rainbow' swirl bowl cased in blue and then cut through to me  :-\

The cutting on the S&W is a bit more angular and "traditional" than on your mystery, which is more flowing and (stylised) leafy.
