They are definitely not Moser. They could be Murano, Czech or even Japanese or a mix of any or all of them

What a collection!  I know nothing about this glass except I saw an Ebay item that has similarities  - if you search under Moser Bohemian High Enamel Glass you'll find a completed item.
I have no idea if the attribution to Moser is accurate or not, Ebay can be very dodgy for that sort of thing, but there will be someone on this board who will be able to say more about them.

Glass / Re: Cased Glass Vase ID

That's what I thought too but I couldn't see anything similar so I guess it will have to be filed beside my ever growing 'maker unknown' cache. Thanks for your input nonetheless :)

Must admit I did think of S&W's rainbow vases but I've never seen one like this before in any books, fairs or the archives, sorry  ???

So far I found this pattern, in french called 'Circulaires', back at Choisy-le-Roi and VSL, both around 1908 but as Sue mentioned, i'm sure you can find it back elsewhere and you'd have to go for the shape to pinpoint it.

Yes, Pall Mall are not crystal, are they? But it's a very similar pattern to one of the ones in that genre. And even with the distortion, I can see the glasses themselves are something a bit better. ;D

Lol,sorry about that,I hope it was the predictive text!..they really are very rummers like in the real and I'll have to alter the settings on the photo reducer thingy next time.Pall mall are very light and I think a lot were continental made where these are solid and well leaded,but thanks I guess there is little chance of pinning down the maker.

It is a common pattern to find engraved on older glasses, but I think, even with the distortion, that they might be unusual glasses to find this sort of engraving on.
One of the other patterns found, in a similar vein, is called Pall Mall, I don't know if searching for that might help pin something down?

There's a wee typo in your title which seems to change the meaning - I was expecting to see a marching band engraved on them.  :)  Mod: title amended.
