    I found this interesting glass this weekend. I was wondering if anyone has seen anything similar? Perhaps point me in the right direction. It is interesting, the name "Holfstein" in gold and some kind of coat of arms with a dog with a long tongue. Don't know much about glass but the bottom has concentric circles to the middle and a "grainy" texture more towards the outside on the bottom. Thanks, enjoy.

      I tried googling a few letters and came up with Wolfstein (Germany)!!
      There is a coat of arms in Wikipedia as same as on the Römer, see for yourself !!

      thanks everyone for the help and the comments and loves. I am not sure that this in quite in the same category as the real real expensive pieces. This looks like a modern piece, maybe a souvenir or collectible? I doubt it could be worth anything significant, still cool to learn thanks everyone!!!!
