I have almost the same deep ruby red vase with the gold included leaves on the base and the rigarre(?) along the top. It is swirl glass and it the most gorgeous deeeep ruby red and lightweight for it's size. I have been trying to find other venetian or murano glass with the leafs at the base. I am unable to post a photo, but mine is VERY much like the vase shown here, just shaped a little different. I thought it was Salviati. I so much wish that I knew who was the correct maker. I search many websites, and cannot find another like it with the leaves on the base in this deep ruby red, or any other color & it's really frustrating me. If anyone has any more photos of venetian glass with the leaves @ base, I would LOOOOVE to see them! Hope I will be able to solve the mystery!!
