Oh, does this mean this could be a Japanese piece of glass ?  It certainly looks like the symbol.  :)

I will try and do some research myself, thank you to all who took some time on researching this beauty

I don't think so, personally. I think it's just what is being used as a maker's mark.
It hasn't got the "extremely neat and accurate" feeling I expect from Japanese work. It's much more free-flowing.

I could be wrong.  ;D

Yes I see what you mean Sue, looking at oriental perfume bottles and nothing looks like this.

I would love to know who made it, looking at the stopper today and it is perfectly made and fits so well in the bottle.

Will keeping looking !!!  ???

Previous posts have suggested the "mark" on the base to be similar to the Chinese / Japanese  character for "Hand". But I see a free floating "dot" in the lower left of the character - does this change the meaning?

If you look at the symbol on the link M posted,

https://kirstenmortensen.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/01/japanese-kanji.jpg

you can see there is a "hook" on the bottom of the vertical line. I wondered if the dot was to signify that.  ???
