I am trying to read a mark on the bottom of a small crystal bowl.

Expert's Assistant: I always love having an appraiser look at my stuff. Sometimes its turned out to be surprisingly valuable. Tell us what else you do know and the Antiques Appraiser will be able to better assist you.

The etching looks like cuprio or aipri ,o

Expert's Assistant: Is there anything else the Antiques Appraiser should be aware of?

I thought it was a steubon as it has the heavy reflective quality of my other pieces.
