It was suggested that this hollow glass ball could well be by Barovier & Toso....has the signs of a sticker to the base with a hole , 5.5 inches tall/wide approx.....I havn't ever seen one before ! Cheers, Mike.

I've not seen anything like this by B&T. I am trying to figure what it may have been used for. Maybe it set on a pedestal.

Hi TxSilver,
There is a bit of scratching to the base and what looks like a torn-off makers lable (I dont think its an old price tag) so it could have just been free standing . Ta Mike
