I can't place this pattern. I was looking first at Schneider but seemingly not...anybody else got a tip to help me?

Its 41 cm diameter!

Please do not count on me, Jay - it's nothing I've seen before, I'm afraid.
Beautiful and obviously of high quality!

Die Erfahrung lehrt, dass, wer auf irgendeinem Gebiet zu sammeln anfängt, eine Wandlung in seiner Seele anheben spürt. Er wird ein freudiger Mensch, den eine tiefere Teilnahme erfüllt, und ein offeneres Verständnis für die Dinge dieser Welt bewegt seine Seele.
Experience teaches that anyone who begins to collect in any field can feel a change in his soul. He becomes a joyful man filled with a deeper empathy, and a more open understanding moves his soul.

Pierre d'Avesn I think. Surprised if it isn't marked though...

Edit: here's a smaller size of what appears to be the same pattern on Glassholic's Flickr collection, also with a D'Avesn attribution :) https://www.flickr.com/photos/glassholic/6323392059/
You can see that example has a moulded mark along the inner row of ribs at about the 5:00 o' clock position.

There definitely isn't a mark on mine! (at any time LOL)
But it DOES look like dÁvesn doesn't it! (Beautifully finished too as you would then expect).

Eureka!,
I found an identical one with a signature. Just a few checks on the sig and we've all become a little wiser today.

Identity confirmed!
Sometime after he finished Lalique but it's not quite clear whether this is Sevres (less likely) or Daum (when you'd expect a mark) or an independent piece.

Perhaps Choisy-le-Roi ... if i remember well  d'Avesn worked for them for a couple of years after WWII.  Their pressed glass items are usually not signed or just signed with 'France'.

I spotted this bowl, same décor but with a foot, I'm not sure if the signature can be taken serious though ... well actually I am sure, because I don't think d'Avesn ever signed like this and it looks a bit amateurish. In the description it says the signature's enamelled but it looks more like a red crayon or something... still, whatever it may be, I think it's a very nice and impressive piece ... one of these pieces that you can't stop looking at, that are very tactile and bring a smile to your face whenever you see them... well, that happens to me sometimes with some pieces, but I've been told on several occasions that I'm losing it a bit.  ??? :-\
