No lines for measuring,
  Sue, I'd be disappointed now ! has that old feel and grey tinge to the glass, bit large for a penny lick, those were not what you'd call  hygienic  :o ;D ;D here's one I found a while ago.... ;D ;D

Thanks John. That was certainly no where near the source that I had expected. Much obliged for your fast response.
I love it!

But we don't know yet if it's VSL, do we? So zipper cut's fine with me  ;D

I think that kind of design might be referred to as 'zipper' cut on American glass.  Perhaps that's where I got it from.
But I think that the VSL phrase  'dentellé' which you used to describe it should be the correct phrase if it is on VSL glass.
So please ignore my previous usage of the word zipper :)

yes I was referring to the 'zipper' cutting on the bowl of the glass.

The stem isn't faceted is it?  I was presuming it was just a  round smooth elongated stem that hadn't been cut in long facets.
