Help required please with ID of this dark amber heavy glass bowl. I'm guessing Scandinavian but would appreciate any views on country of origin, maker and value.
It has a twin cavity as shown in the third image.
Approx 25cm long x 12cm high

Hi and welcome. :)
I'm afraid I really cannot make out what your glass is like from these photos.
Could you try taking more pics, using a plain background? (a couple of sheets of white A4 can help a lot  :) ).

We need a clear image of the base, we can tell a lot from the way something has been finished off, don't fret if it doesn't look like there's much to see, the sort of nothing much is important.
We need an image from the top, (to show your compartments) and one to show the profile outline - the overall shape.

Your images also do not blow up very well. We have plenty of techie help and info here to help you sort things out.

Nice find - not Scandinavian though, but Czech: Vladimir Mika design for Moser / Karlovarske Sklo

How on earth, even knowing what it is, did you manage to work out this might be one of those? ??? ??? ???
Is it really?
It looks like a short, flattish conical-shaped bowl to me. :o

Much easier if you have one or two of these in your collection ;D
Well, the design and the colours are quite distinctive...

That's a bit more like it.  :)
The one in your link was tall and oval - it didn't look anything remotely like the OP's pics, I could not "map" them on to each other at all.  ;D

Thank you so much everyone, yes Rocco, that's exactly what I have. What kind of price does it achieve do you know? Condition is good with a few surface scratches to the base. No label but really stunning and incredibly heavy.

You could try searching "sold" images on that certain well-known auction site to see if any of these have sold in the past.
We don't really discuss values here, they are far too contentious.
Something is worth what somebody is willing to pay for it, in that place, at that time.
