Welcome to the message board Aurelia.

Your pot is French, made by Les Verriers de Maure Vieil. Much of their glass has a rustic quality, I think your ball stopper was made like that. Nice to still have it, the pot and the stopper could easily have been separated over the years.

I was very curious too, thanks, John. :)
I was sure the stopper was original and right though, if it was something else which was broken, it would have been flat on the "top", so it could stand.
