Identifying Barware Glasses?

I need help identifying barware. There is no maker's mark present. I bought it 2nd hand. Does anyone recognize this pattern + maker? I bought 7 of these glasses, and would really like to purchase one more to complete the set. I can't find any maker's mark. I've ruled out Georges Briard and Libbey and Hazel Atlas. If anyone can help identify that'd be great!

Very unusual glasses.
I have racked my memory and just cannot come up with anything to suggest as far as a brand or company. I like the raised design but it's pretty elaborate for someone to just make a small number of pieces. It is definitely a unique design so if anyone has ever seen anything like it they would most likely remember seeing it.
The reason I'm bringing this up is there are several forums that members discuss glassware and I'm hoping someone might be able to help identify this design.
Please send your picture to as many sites as possible so maybe someone will be able to help. You will have to join the groups but I believe it will be worth it.

Reddit is the best source but it can be more difficult to use. If you post here and have problems just ask the administrators for help.

You can try these but not all will be into bar glassware.

You can also present you question to JustAnswer but this site is not free - their fees can be anywhere from $5 to $90.

You can probably find some information if you post to some these sites.

This glass is a mystery. I am rarely at a loss on dish and glass patterns. Can you tell me, is the burgundy/maroon section smooth of is it rough? Do I see a seam on the left side? I am trying to figure out how the pattern was affixed. It is a possibility (rare, but always possible) that they were done by a local artist and are not a "brand". I say that because they are highly stylized, which is not common in most of the vintage glasses.

At first I thought it was a Boscul Peanut Butter Jar glass or a Sassy Swig glass (I am having a brain lock if they were cheese or jelly jars)--they had some food product and then you kept the glass. I am still not convinced it is not, but I have yet to match the pattern.

You could see if Replacements.com could identify it for you. They have a feature where they identify glassware and dishes.

Post back what you learn, meanwhile I will keep digging!

The burgundy/maroon section is a little raised from, and there is no seam at all. I appreciate you helping with this! I am usually able to find at least something on the vtg glassware I thrift but this is a complete mystery to me as well.

I did submit to replacements.com and they couldn't identify it - so you might be right in that they were made outside of a brand.

Wow! I am disappointed that replacements can't place it. Here is an article on Sassy Swigs. It was cheese. Not sure if this blogger is still in business. If so, maybe the blogger can help: retroreclaimations.com/.../vintage-glassware-swanky-swigs

They are pretty!! Hope you are able to learn more and post back with the updates! Blessings!
