I suspect B&T but does anyone know which designer and age?

Ivo, can you post a picture of the base?  Are the handles rough, almost sandy feeling?

It doesn't look like any piece of Barovier I've seen.

I really don't think it's Barovier. I suspect that it's a fairly contemporary piece, as I've seen these 'scavo' handles on new glass trying to replicate roman glass.  However, I have not seen this exact form or color before, so I don't know for sure.
