I was given a house warming present a few years back. What seems to be is a 2 piece crystal punch bowl. From what i can tell is it looks as if it could be used as two different bowls or just one with a pedestal. I'm hoping that it is an American Brilliant period cut glass piece, but that may be wishful thinking. As for details, i was unable to locate any marking, it rings quite nicely when flicked, sawtooth on both rims has some chipping along with scratches here and there. I can't tell whether or not is has mold lines, but it does look as if some of the patterns and cuts all around the bowls are not all identical, some lines are sharper, some are rounder, not sure if that helps or not. Also, was the frosted design even done during that time period? I am unable to find any other that resembles this online. So at this point i would LOVE to get any and all opinions.
Thank you sooo very much.

and here are some links to pictures, since HTML codes doesnt seem to work. Hope it helps.

    The cut areas left in the gray tell us that it is not ABP cut glass. This is most likely of Eastern European origin, probably Czechoslovakia, made within the last 40 years at best.

    I agree with Paul!

    Paul, thank you so much for your input, now i can bring out and use it instead of hiding it away in the display case.
