............  apart from 'spoilage', the oranges and lemons were also used for vitamin C intake to avoid scurvy, which prompted the U.S. guys to call us Brits. limeys............   :)

could be wrong, but thought I had seen them without the additional marks - and it may well be the case that the lack of same might indicate a second.

Grog glasses in England according to Old English Glasses 1897.... http://www.archive.org/stream/oldenglishglasse00hart#page/328/mode/2up

The meaning of Grog today seems different...

Quote
The word originally referred to a drink made with water or "small beer" (a weak beer), lemon or lime juice, and rum, which British Vice Admiral Edward Vernon introduced into the Royal Navy on 21 August 1740. Vernon wore a coat of grogram cloth and was nicknamed Old Grogram or Old Grog. However, Merriam Webster's Collegiate Dictionary, which agrees with this story of the word's origin, states that the word "grog" was first used in this sense in 1770, though other sources cite 1749. The citrus juice was added to prevent spoilage, then it was also found to prevent scurvy, two reasons to continue the practice.

Just for the record - there's been several on the market with Oberglas stickers since then, but here's one in a presumably original box on sale on an Austrian site:
https://www.willhaben.at/iad/kaufen-und-verkaufen/antiquitaeten-sammlungen-kunst/oberglas-vase-gloria-70er-jahre-128796985/

So the name of this design would be "Gloria" !

Except the S has no =. I would expect =S= for Stonier. Second perhaps

Just found another one of these mystery vases on the net, in blue: >> Link
I still haven't seen any real evidence that these are Romanian, but it doesn't seem totally unlikely to me.

I have definitely seen the following heavy vintage pieces with "Made in Romania" stickers:

>> these iridescent hotworked vases come in dark blue or green, and are not uncommon here. Same roughly ground base.
>> pieces with this decor (vases, bowls, swans)

the impossible we try to do immediately  -  miracles take just a few minutes longer ;) ;)

As you will see if you look through the Board's search, we've had quite a few pieces here with this upper case S, but I think the frequency with which they turn up now is getting a little less  -  they make for a good thematic sort of collection.

Good to see that you've managed to run down the pattern  -  we often draw a blank when trying to locate the name of many cut designs.
