Hi

A nicely cut stem and undulating line on bowl.

Any ideas on the maker?

Presumably it's off the ship.

I wondered what RMS stands for, it turns out Royal Mail Ship, which ties in with:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/RMS_Queen_Elizabeth

It might be possible to find out who fitted the ship out and who supplied goods.

Googled and found another RMS Queen Elizabeth glass, boxed, (engraved with a picture of the ship) that's Stuart Glass.
Stuart or Waterford would seem the logical choices.

I guess you spotted the CUNARDER R.M.S. CARINTHIA CRYSTAL CHAMPAGNE GLASS, that's the same as yours but has RMS Carinthia etched on it, which is a Cunard ship not a glass maker.

Also found a Waterford crystal jug, made for the Cunard line.

The style of etching on your glass reminds me more of Stuart than Waterford.

Found one, etched with RMS Queen Mary, attributed to Stuart:

Etched RMS Queen Mary mark to each of the Stuart Crystal Cocktail Glasses Set.
