    I believe your example to be a very nice fake. Below is my reasoning from empirical observations in my study of ancient and medieval glass including how fakes are produced. The market for fakes has...

    Glass slides in poorly vented molds and can put embossing all over the place. It's not a product of the engraved mould but of the glass hitting air in the mould and causing it to move. You see this...

    I've seen this done before: applying fake embossing. I'm now wondering if they all stem from the same source originally. Some sort of souvenir piece or something.
