I found this vase at a resale shop.  It's textures and colors are quite extraordinary.  But, alas, there are no maker's marks or signatures.  Still, I couldn't pass it up even though it cost a bit of money.  It stands 16.51 cm. and 10.16 across the base.  it appears to be hand blown, as the pontil has been polished and it's very shiny.  Maybe someone has seen something like this before?

Gaudy? Do these colors appear East European?

Hi,

This is by Benny Motzfeldt for Randsfjord glass Norway. I've seen labelled examples in the past.

Here's another shape in a similar colourway that I sold a while ago: http://www.flickr.com/photos/kingofbananas/4035998036/in/set-72157606236337315/
