Did/Do Stiver make ruffled edged compotes in Amberina?

If so, you might have solved a mystery piece that has been bugging me for ages!

I don't think the "Diamante" coppa comes with a ruffled edge; as for colours, yes all colours under the sun including black, white, baby blue and amberina-ish.

Thank you, Ivo.  I am trying to track down pictures of the amberina one and then I think there was also a purple or amethyst compote.  Neither were mine.

I tracked down the owner and I misremembered.  It didn't have a ruffled edge.

It belonged to Cheri and I asked her to post an image of it here.
