Imaginative sounds about right, I would agree with Sue, 30 to 40 Euro would be more realistic. If the stopper is tortoiseshell (like the bottle) then it would be a match - needing to be brown rather than blue in colour.

Paul, oh gosh, another newbie mistake...I'll get better! 
It's what my bases from the early '70s look like. :)
I have checked it against initialled (signed) ones.
The bubbles, formed on a sort of metallic grid, are just right for '70s Benny.
They can have gold-ish and black-ish sort of bits to them.

The shape is sort of right, the rim is right, the base is consistent with others I've seen. They're not all the same, but do tend to be heat finished.
I've had completely wonky bits with bulbous accidental shapes.

(I'm off to try to find some pics to illustrate, but I'm also in the middle of making dinner. ;D )

It looks a bit like Marie's writing.
I think the price is very... imaginative?  :D (try dividing it by ~ 5)

It is a farily early piece, mid-'70s. I'm not sure the stopper matches, but they were optional extras at the time anyway and can be paired up without worrying too much, except that this one doesn't actually match.

Hi Frankie,  ;D Welcome!

There is some information on signatures here
and I'm sure some more in the Malta glass section.
Hopefully the knowledgeable members, of which there are a couple, will be along soon.

Thanks for your help della and I hate to appear a pedant but I think mine is at it's widest lower down and tapering to a narrower opening,maybe the vertical ribbing on mine altered the shape a bit?It appears almost colourless on the main body,oh dear another back door whitefriars piece maybe?

Thank you, both.  ;D
Picture attached for you, John.
Hi Sue  :-* Hope you're well!

I would be ecstatic if it were Benny Motzfeldt! What do you think about the base though? Is that original or a fix?

The writing looks absolutely right. My piece is fully signed "Ourglass '03 P.T.", so I can compare the o, the g and the 3. The fine-rough ground base is right.
They're a brother and sister team.
