Would be very grateful to receive any help identifying these little gems, Iíve not come across anything similar apart from the Molineaux Webb 699 which also has the tiny little pin head size balls around the edge. Unfortunately it doesnít glow. Thanks Mike

Gosh, that is strangely fancy for something likely to be knocked but I can't think of what else it might be.  The dark green colour & design elements are typical of much early American glass - you could try the EAPG web pages.  Sorry I can't help more.  Wish they were mine :)

Hi,
thanks for your comments, my initial thoughts were of an American pattern it does not light up with a uv torch.
The only similarities with others I have is with this Molineaux and Webb one, they both have gadroons and pimples? Sorry my knowledge of how to describe these pieces is still in its infancy.
Kind regards
