Heavy crystal? bowl - perhaps an ashtray - unknown mark
« on: April 28, 2017, 07:15:06 PM »
Hello again - first of all - want to thank everyone who helped me on my last post - I have another one that is puzzling me. This bowl is about 6" in diameter and about 2 inches high. Fairly heavy - weighs over 1 kilo. It has a very very small mark that I have taken a picture of through a loupe. Does anyone recognize this mark? Or have any other ideas about the origin of this piece? Thank you so much once again.

This style seems to be referred to as "River Rock" for obvious reasons.  Googling brings up quite a few images which show that particular design.  You might find the maker of yours there.

Can't help with the base mark.  Perhaps someone will know.  ;)
