Small thick cased vase.
« on: March 19, 2007, 03:03:23 AM »

Can anyone ID this little vase? Is cased with thick glass, and has a floral pattern. Bit like a paperweight, but is 11cms with opening at the mouth.
On the inside it has a few specks of glass which has stuck to the inner. It's got a 3D look to it, the pattern mirrors itself in the layers.

I would think Murano?

I've got one of these, Sandymae.  They're definitely Chinese!  Rather nicely done though, aren't they?   ;D

Oh Poo!!!

 Will add it to my growing Chinese collection! Sure is getting harder to pick them.
