It reminds me of Ray's WMF ice bucket which we used in the 2007 Calendar, pic here:

He's not always right in his attributions. I would say probably not Venini, more likely Scandinavian

Leave it here for a bit, then we can shuffle the item round the boards later maybe.

Oddly, I can't decide which point of origin seems most likely...Italy or Scandinavia.  I think I'm more on the side of Italian.  What's the base like Sue?

Hi Max, the base is flat, the more i look at it the more it confuses me?? looking at the rim it looks as thought it is two vases, a larger vase
over a smaller one if that makes sence :huh: i will try to take a better photo of the rim and base.
