Nope. I've never seen one quite like that before either.  :)  Looks like a good quality older piece . I couldn't say if it was a particular designers though.

I still can't quite work it out,
its like a cross between designs, if you see what I mean.

Any age to it do you think ?   :huh:


I've asked the seller for a pic of the base.

I just accept it for a funky geometric shape.  Probably at a guesstimate 60s - early 70s.  It's nice to find that sort of thing with no damage.  Most of my stuff like that has teeny nibbles on an edge somewhere - very irritating!

That had crossed my mind, if it was the case its ended up being an interesting piece.
