So, I'm going out on a limb here, as my last post felt like a little bit of a whoopin'

But, I bought this exact same piece a couple years ago at a shop in Wash, D.C.

I do carry quite a bit of Victorian diamond quilted satin glass and after close examination felt this piece was definitely Italian, 20th century and perhaps as new as the 1970's

The satin on the interior was rough, the crimping at the rim was of relatively poor quality, just didn't feel right for late 19th century.

ok, I'm ready for my next whoopin' now ...

It is really tough from the pics, but the blue, as it appears in the pics, strikes me as not being right for an older piece...... Could be the images though....  IMHO the "feel" of the foot does not strike me as old either with the satin ring.

In most cases I can recall the ring is generally the same color as the foot or the stem. In this case it is not.... that could be a minor point. Additionally the ring size on this pieces is noticeably larger than period examples I could find images of. Lastly, the exagerated shape of the foot also strikes me as much more contemporary..... It seems most period feet I am familiar with have a much more gentle slope and less pronounced rise than this piece.

Without handling it though, it is tough to really tell. 

Whatever the age, it is a pretty piece of glass.
