I've seen something like this before here  :?  I think if I remember correctly the maker is the one who also does that dark green glass.  Sorry to be so vague   :oops:  :roll:

Were you thinking of Desna, Leni. And the dark green glass is, I think, "jade". We saw quite a lot of it in the flea markets in Vienna. I may be totally wrong here, so ignore me if I am  :shock:

It reminds me of the style used by the Czech glassmakers Schlevogt and Hoffmann. Absolutely beautiful!

BTW, The dark green glass referred to earlier is, I believe, known as MALACHITE glass, and was used extensively by Schlevogt and Hoffmann.

Actually I think that dark green glass is known by both the "jade" name as well as "malachite". In fact I've also seen it called "jadeite"!

Back in the 1800s Sowerby used the term malachite (in fact I think they introduced the term, but others may know better) to refer to their variegated glass whereby a colour (such as purple or blue) was swirled and mingled with white to achieve a marble-like effect. Sowerby's malachite can be found in such colours as purple, green, blue (also called Sorbini), turquoise, brown, grey and white.
