Ovoid vase in olive green its 8.5inch tall 4.5 inch diameter at the widest. It weighs a hefty 860grams few ounce short of 2lb. Highly polished dimpled base. Photod with a supermarket 2ltre tall bottle of lemonade for better idea of scale.

Look like a Caithness barrel (4019) vase in Moss. Designed by Domnhall OBrion in 1961 and being produced well into the 2000s  in several sizes (Caithness Glass Mark Hill)

Three Wise Women would have asked for directions, arrived on time, delivered the baby, cleaned the stables and made a casserole...

And there WOULD have been peace on earth.
