Hi Jim,



I just discovered this Dec 2012 question because I googled the very same ID marks from an identical item. My late mother acquired it in the 1940s. She used it as a vase with a heavy, spiky flower frog in the bottom. She loved it, as do I. We keep it highly polished, as she did, but use it as a very glam white wine cooler in warm Sydney, Australia.



Cheers!

Helen
