Cobalt blue bowl with applied conical shape foot/stem

Odd, but interesting looking piece.  Any ideas would be greatly appreciated ;)

It stands 11" high.  I'm not absolutely sure how its been made, except that the conical shape foot/stem, appears to have been applied and has tool marks on the base.  I can't see any mould lines on the bowl section.  Definately some age to it looking at the wear on the base.

TIA  :)

I have an item with an identical foot from Atlantis Crystal, Portugal...

Thanks Ivo 8).  Not heard of Atlantis Crystal before.  I don't think the base of mine is crystal though - its too yellowish.
