A perfume bottle with millefiori and this time that paper label. Looks like a layer of grey (powder) under the millefiori, snapped mark at base, the stopper/dibber is long and nearly reaches the bottom.

having now looked at TNA pix for 189121/2, there are notable design similarities with 183352/3, but I'm no wiser unfortunately, as to why the factory drawings for the earlier pair, together with Jenny Thompson's drawing, show those large stars, and your creamer doesn't (neither do stars appear on 189121/2).            This doesn't mean your piece is unrelated and it has such a close similarity in other respects, but I'm no expert on this factory  -  perhaps Neil can give an opinion :)
Jenny Thompson was obviously keen to point out in her book that the sugar and creamer were adorned with "large star pattern grouped round middle", for 183352/3.

Drawings for both 189121/2 show a lidded butter dish with an impressed star to the base, and a raised cogwheel pattern in relief around the rims of both the base and lid, and on the finial of the butter lid  -  but as I say no stars.        This cogwheel pattern is common to all four Registrations - the earlier pair date to January of 1865, and the later pair to August of the same year.
The earlier pair of Registrations are for a sugar and creamer, and my opinion is that the later pair of Regs. refer the lid and base, separately, of the butter dish only.

Will post pix shortly  -  am still mystified as the absence of stars on your creamer, assuming it is related to Reg. 183353.

Thank you! That's a great help. I think you are right in initials EJ... strange glass to be monogrammed but perhaps they had their own at the local hostelry  ;D

possibly picasa simply doesn“t work any longer and doesn“t allow restore the links. I“ve tried to copy them
to google photos.
Here are the Schlevogt pictures:
And here are those from the cemetary in Kamenickż Šenov:
Let“s see if this works...

thanks - though I'm still unsure really as to which letters of the alphabet these are  -  possibly E J  -  but I'm still of the opinion that the font is of continental origin, and suspect you were correct with the suggestion of a shot glass - might this have been for schnapps, possibly?

Looking at the rim, it does appear to be flat - suggesting that after making the shape the rim was ground and polished flat  -  this in itself is a feature of continental rather than British glassware.
Unfortunately, beyond this I doubt that you will be able to find out any more - and as to date, my uneducated opinion is possibly second half C19.
Glass Paperweights / Re: Antique Millefiori Scramble Latticino Weight ID please

Lack of wear on the base doesn't say anything about the age.  Some paperweights are in pristine condition after 120 years or longer.  Others show considerable wear.

Hi Dirk,

I can confirm that, for me, your picasa links give "page not found".

BAD news everyone. It arrived and was the small version of this vase and the ad claimed it was 9" tall when it was actually 6 3/4" tall. I was very disappointed. Will let you know what happens.

Yes, 183353 would allude to a known shape they produced. 189121/2, I think is probably the actual pattern. Height to top of handle is 12.5 cm.
