I've had this vase for some time but have never been able to find out who made it. It measures approximately 10 1/4 inches (26 cm) tall by 3 inches (8 cm) in diameter.

It has a cloudy blue layer, cased in clear glass. The top rim has been ground smooth but not polished. The exterior of the vase shows some patchy iridescence in the form of a light metallic sheen, particularly towards the base. It's a great looking vase but has always proved to be something of a mystery. There is wear to the foot suggesting it has some age but how much I don't know.

Thanks,
Steven

Just bumping this up as with all the recent activity it disappeared from the front page very quickly.
