    Found this at a glass-connoisseur's estate. I know we have some very, very smart glass collectors here, so I'd like to post this piece.

    It looks mould-blown, wheel-cut, and polished, unlike the 1920's Depression-era pressed agate & slag glass articles I am familiar with. Also, the glass contains a huge amount of mica-flake, AKA aventurine, making it sparkle. I looked around on Google at the slag-glass names I know, but nothing really matched....

    Does anyone have any thoughts on who made this piece? Any suggestions would be appreciated, no matter how small
    Thank you for reading

      Would not surprise me if this was Bohemian, Stillwater. Love the colour combination and like Kevin said, Special, I think.

      Cannot be sure without seeing it in person, but I would suggest you research "Lithyalin" glass as a category, and even "Friedrich Egermann" as a possibly maker. Between those 2 searches, I think you may be able to identify it.
