Actually yes it is too much trouble right now; we're recovering from a massive computer crash and are just breaking in the new laptop, so it may be a few weeks before we're up and running all the way.

The air bubbles in efeso glass are more irregular, with more larger bubbles.

I agree that this piece looks more Scandinavian than Italian. I have Sea Glassbruk vases with almost the same form. But, with Murano glass, just about anything is possible.  But, it doesn't look like Barovier or seguso to me.

At the risk of exhausting the Board's patience, I re-photo'd the bubbles, inclusions and base.  These pix, I think, do a better job than the others.  The color is rose/pink, not brick red (the 1st shows it more accurately than the 2nd).  I promise this to be my last posting on this topic!
Thanks,
Charles.

As you have demonstrated

the color is better with the flash

the first pics have too much yellow

did Laura say the bubbles in efeso were more irregular... heh...

check the pics of the blue bottle I posted above

the bubbles look more "regular"... to me...

I'm convinced the vase is efeso or some variation thereof

I don't know of ant Scandinavian glass with particles floating around in it

but there is a type of WMF... but that's not it...

there are lots of variables, color, thickness of glass etc...

that cause a variation in glass

a never ending experiment... at least in italy... heh...

the WMF glass would be of the Art Deco period

heh...

HAPPY NEW YEAR~

Springhead was wondering about particles floating in Scandinavian glass. Several designers used the colour without fusion technique, although there wasn't much colour. I've got Benny Motzfeldt and Bengt Orup pieces with the effect. Also, several other designers used the effect, though I haven't seen it in red glass. Both Scandinavian and Murano factories could produce glass with the bubbles and the particles, which isn't surprising   given the amount of cross pollination at the time. So I don't think we can use those general criteria (bubbles and inclusions) to say where where the vase came from.

I wish I had more Scandinavian books as all I'm with is, "It still looks Scandinavian to me."

Benny Motzfeldt used floating particles and randomly shaped bubbles on a lot of her designs,
most of her art glass has bubbles and/or inclusions. She used metal shavings/particles, glass fibre,
metal mesh etc. B.M. used a wide variety of colors, not so much vibrant and bright colors,
but all over the spectre from clear to dark purples.

Her techniques influenced other glassmakers in Norway and you'll see her influence on a lot of Severin Brøbry pieces.

Vintage RG is usually not signed. The glass was usually labelled Randsfjord Glass and Designed by XYZ
B.M. signed her unique works with B.M and year (and usually not glassworks).
 
I agree with the top looking very Danish, Holmegaard/Kastrup jumps to mind.
My gut feeling says it's not Norwegian but it's a weak gut feeling.
