    This is not ABP cut glass from the early 1900s. The glass portion is Eastern Europen (you can tell this by the cutting as well as areas left "in the gray"), metal fittings are most likely American. These were quite popular in the 1960s and 1970s.

    Paul hit the nail on the head. A great number of people are fooled when buying such pieces into thinking their glass is old American Brilliant. Don't let this reveal change your love for the piece. Enjoy it!

    Mark is right, it is lovely for what it is.
