Has anyone got any glass that may have a similar base to the one shown?

The Venetian glass pieces of this type are often difficult to attribute because there are several companies that made similar appearing glass. Sometimes these companies even worked together, marketing through a common outlet. The style of the glass is like pieces made by Salviati, Barovier, and Fratelli Toso. The style was popular in the late 1800s-early 1900s, but the traditional styles were often used later. If I were a guessing person, I would say there is a good chance it was made by one of the three mentioned companies sometimes between 1900-1930s, but without knowing your specific piece, it is just a guess.

Hi! all.  I am still unable to obtain any more details regarding these esquisite, and fragile pieces.  I am aware that they are rare and it would be interesting to find out if there are any others.   I have looked and researched on other types.  I have even sent emails but nothing has been positive as yet.  It is ashame that I am not able to find one even modern, that endures an array of Venetian colours so laced in specks of gold.  I have been on suggested sites to no avail.  It would be hard to comprehend that these such wonderful pieces should be used as Napkin Holders.  If anything, it is of one's opinion that they should stand alone, elegantly displayed as showroom pieces.  I would very much appreciate if anyone could assist on this desperate matter in obtaining any more leads.  Kind Regards!

hi otis
the more I look at these I can only see Salviati as the maker,
but take into account my very few years in this fascinating subject against the experts on this site,
they really do know what they'r talkin about.
The lack of a diffinative answer is because without a label or sig. there probably is no answer.
"it looks like or in the style of" is probably as much as can be given.

Regardless of this, they are fine pieces that I would love on my shelf.   :chky: :chky:
