Oh well, at least it's not described as Murano, they usually are.

I thought Tango was two colours (orange and black). Is my memory going wonky on me?

What was it again - Snowflake or Dalian?

Sold under the name 'Plum Blossom' according to this: http://www.theglassmuseum.com/Chinese.html Origin is 天津Tianjin (Tientsin is the old postal map romanisation), This city too is in the north east of China but quite a distance from Dalian.

The Chinese name reads: 梅花牌花瓶 (mei2 hua1 pai2 hua1 ping2), this just means 'Plum blossom brand vase'.
