Good link, thanks, I was begining to veer towards Dalian until I got to the bit about not being able to see through the Nason when held up to the light, can't see a thing through mine so maybe Nason.

Now I look again if I look right through the top to the base at the light it does look purple.  Does the base tell any one anything?  To me the copper streaks seem chunkier than the genuine Nason examples.

Definitely Dalian - I agree with Ivo... here's a link to one I posted up here a while ago

http://www.glassmessages.com/index.php/topic,5903.0.html

Very interesting reading through some of the older threads in the other links - there's one particular thread where the originator is 99.9% certain theirs is a Nason - but looking at it it's got all the trademarks of a Chinese Dalian vase - still it's an old discussion, maybe these Chinese Nason lookeylikeys weren't so common then.
