Couldn't resist so here are the photo's, 5.5. inches tall, no pontil mark, very little wear, the label says....' Intaglio Handcut By Blackheath, West Midlands' Not the best piece I've ever seen , the glass 'goes' clunk and doesn't ring. Not aware of any glass cutters or makers in the town so a bit of a mystery  ::) ;D ;D

' Blackheath Glassworks started. we think, in the early 1950s, small place 7 cutters the lady said plus gaffers, the company moved in the 70s to Bewdley, wish I could get info' that quick !
