I have one of these and I'm sure it has been on the board before as well but I can't find it at the mo.  I think I saw it years ago described as Murano, but I never investigated further - I use mine for flowers and it's impossible to clean out so it won't be sold  ;D

????  Not sure - but (might) it be Murano (guessing)

Not sure as yours has like only 2 lobes on the side, the one that I have has like 3 lobes on the outside

so might be , might not -- someone that knows more that we will surely help, and guide you.  Mine is merely a suggestion of similarity (maybe) ???

Hi, Try looking at this post... I only collect them in Vaseline and orange/red..... but I think it is the same item in different colors.....  found with 2, 3 and 4 fins (lobes) and slightly different internal forms  and fins... made by Galliano Ferro....

edit in: I added a quick pic of one of mine with a label.... and I think the ebay reference is likely also a GF piece.
I have been told that glass is my mistress......
