This is a beautiful vase. It is 9 inches tall 5 inches wide at the top lip, 3 1/2 inches wide at the base . The base is clear the rest is lavender with iridescent gold drapes. There are no markings on the vase that I see. The pontil is ground down. I have no idea of the age or anthing else any help would be great.
Thanks
Debbi

Is the glass full of bubbles (pulegosa), or am I seeing something else? I have  piece of purplish pulegosa that I've never been able to identify, but Mexico was a suggestion from someone, which would make sense where you are. The glass in the piece I have is quite light with very frothy bubbles.

The piece doesn't look Murano to me, although the technique (fenicio) is typical Murano.
I hope this is a start for you.

No it has no bubbles. The outside is like a glass coating or something while the inside is clear I guess it is layers I don;t know but I thank you so much for the reply any help is great.

Is the pontil mark unpolished, if so I would suggest the East or Eastern Europe

The pontil is unpolished, it is concave almost. I have no idea about the age so it could very well be new as Michelle said. It is a beautiful vase I thank everyone for their help. I still need help with my little pink vase I think I'll post it again.

This is just what I was about the type. I see this pattern on eBay listed as Murano or Italian design by sellers of Murano-like Chinese pieces.
