Signed Morris? I think itís been engraved as a presentation piece so the crest is the company it was made for. Maybe Dartington glass, or one of the Irish glassworks.

The star above the crescent moon was a sign for the Ottoman Empire..but normally an eight pointed star ?

Looks more like soda glass than crystal. I'm pretty sure you can rule out Dartington or any company from Ireland
