I'm not the slightest bit certain about what this little glass actually is/was, nor do I know anything about its maker/origin/age. It just appealed to me anyway when spotting it on the shelf at Goodwill the other day (if nothing else because it is RED?! <lol>) so for a buck or so it followed me home. ;-) I could imagine it was once part of a set (probably with a decanter or something?) because it just seems like that's what it should be...??
It measures about 3-1/2" at its widest, and its red color sorta seems to be some kind of 'applied' finish, (inside and out?) as its smaller solid base is actually clear glass. Its exterior surface is decorated with what turns out to be an ever-so-slightly engraved *spiral* pattern of fine lines roughly 1/16" apart, I didn't realize it was actually a spiral (vs. just concentric rings) until gently washing it and taking the pics for this showing, as matter of further fact. <headdesk>
Not gonna mark it as an 'unsolved mystery' because I'm not sure it is anything warranting that, but I'd otherwise absolutely welcome anybody's (of our many CW 'glass experts') comments if someone does really recognize something about it to give me any further clues?? :-) :-) :-)
