These metallic, satin and brightly "painted" (?) items are bound to crop up on Ebay:

Hopefully this will come in useful when people start asking what they are.

This looks like one of them

There are several similar balluster forms shown in the original link in "Shapes" section. It also has the same high gloss finish anfd gold intereior as some shown in "Colours"
 
I wrote to the seller to ask what it said on the labels.
They replied

Hi, the top label says: ambiente, zwiesel, made in germany. The gold one says mouthblown handmade.
Thanks for your interest, Regards Z.

So this means they are made by the  Zwiesel glass company ? Or made in the town called  Zwiesel by A.N.Other using a trade name Ambiente ?
Ivo ?
