First thought when i bought this was it reminded me of loetz tango or something along those lines but knowing my luck its more than likely to be chinese, Not even sure if the epns lid is original to the jar but it works. Anyone got any clues on this one,

thanks rob

It's way out of my comfort zone but my first thought would also be Czech/Austrian tango glass but I have no knowledge of glass in this area at all. Re: the lid - it looks original to the base to my eye.

difficult really, but the shape and the colour are good as far as I can see. The base is a difficult one. I think it looks good for Bohemian, but I think you would struggle to id a maker as so many of these were made by different companies. I like the lid as well, it looks right. I have a little jam jar with enamel decoration on it and it just doesn't look right cos it's missing a lid. I suspect it would have been a little flat metal one to sit inside the top rather than glass as I've seen others with a metal lid.
But other than that I can't add any more. Nice piece :)

This type of ware was also made in Empoli and Japan but this one is Czech Deco era without doubt.
NOT all tango was made by Loetz ! In fact most of it wasn't. After Powolny designed the first items all the factories (many !) started copying.
Loetz quality is often obvious. On a simple item like this much depends on "feel" of the quality and the finish.
Not much can be deduced from a sand cooled base normally except that it usually seems to appear on earlier production, however Loetz would probably have found a way of finishing it better.
The depth of colour seems good and it's more translucent, less opaque, than most which I personally prefer but it's hard to judge the exact tone because your white balance is off. I am assuming that your background is white but it looks bluish grey which means we're not seeing the true shade. Pete
