This piece is signed E Nason 1969.
I think that is Ermanno Nason.
I have been unable to find out more by surfing the www and would be grateful for any information about this master glassblower.
Also as to the value, as I think that it should be listed  on my house content insurance.  
Thanks Ruth.

It is 14.5cm wide by 9.5cm across by 10.5cm high.
Many thanks. Please let me know how you research it, that will be a good lesson for me.

 There is story to this, I bought it from a lady at an antiques fair, about 15 plus years ago and another piece aswell, quite different and I will post that later. She said that they were the last two pieces of a collection and one person had bought all the others. I wish I had been there earlier! It cost  15 pounds.  Don't know why those two were left. My gain though.

£15?  Wow.  This was my favourite piece from all the pictures you posted earlier.  I love the 'cave painting' naivety of it....and the colours are just fabulous.   :D

Actually..looking at it again (couldn't help myself!) I'm beginning to think that the blue is the sky reflected?  Is it just cased clear?

Ok here we go then
Introduced in 1965 these works were designed by Ermanno Nason and produced at Gino Cenedese where Nason was also master glass blower from 1964-1971. This was the first time he made works based on his own designs, but during this period he also worked closely with Antonio da Ros, on much larger exhibition pieces.
The book Italian Glass Murano Milan carries some pictures of further examples of this series on pages 202-205.
The last example of these I can find selling at auction made $640 so a nice one at £15.
Now can I have first lust after it PLEASE!!!!!!!

:D:D:D  
 :twisted: MY claim to first lust is documented in Ruth's thread "Glass Collection". I am a little disappointed to find that the blue in it is the sky, however, so I shall stand aside Paul. 8) Still a wonderful piece, and still one of my favourites Ruth.
Well spotted Max!
Cheers, Sue (M)

This series is likened to the graal pieces in the free hand technique that was used. Aaccording to my books the abstract characters were superimposed on a gold ground or embedded in thick walled tined glass.
 piece on them is in "Italian Glass 1930-1970" along with some great colour pictures of more of the range.

Sorry - I never looked at your post close enough - E Nason is Ermanno Nason  worked for Mazzegga, Gino Cenedese 1964 - 70 - but... I took a while on this post so I am leaving it in since it is one of the Murano Nason factories I am blabbing on about - maybe it will help someone

:D Late on this one – but am new to board – Vincenzo Nason like Carlo Moretti trained at Venini, but he went on to set up on his own in Murano – Nason called his company ‘Nason & Cie’ – ‘Nason and Co’ on all export wares – the company was started in 1966 – 67 and is still going to this day – sometimes they signed, sometimes not – the labels changed but the wording did not – here are two bits one ‘sommerso’ piece from 1969 and one ‘palette’ vase from 1982 - 5 both with labels – one is etch signed – from my personal collection – hope this helps – btw there were other older companies called Nason apart from V Nason and E Nason; Emillio Nason founded AVEM , died in 1950s
