Crystal like this tends to date from the second quarter of the 20th Century. A lot of it came from Czechoslovaki and was originally marked with foil or paper labels, which were removed after sale or simply wore off. While not mass produced in the modern sense it was made in large numbers for the export market. Most of it was seldom used, spending most of its time on display in china cabinets, hence it still survives in very large numbers. This means that values for it currently are quite modest , we often see unmarked pieces like this sell for under $150.00.
