Yep it is soffiati glass. I have about 40 pieces from SVdA, CVM etc from the 20's/30's. A very good piece glassobsessed and yes Paul i would consider that soffiati. Most tends to be unmarked from what I can tell. A consideration on this piece obsessed would be CVM as to maker due to the colour and also the handles.

I second CVM - I've had a marked piece with the same handles, although the vase was in a rauchtopaz colourway.

Thank you Kane and Nic, this is entirely outside of my collecting field so your help is much appreciated.

This one bears some similarities and has a label (lot 3038): http://www.liveauctioneers.com/item/6121212
Similar but with handles (lot 3043): http://www.liveauctioneers.com/item/6121217
Others I have found online have feet or handles in a second colour and/or a very similar shape to this one.

I was thinking of bringing the vase with me to the National Glass Fair next month if anyone wants to take a look at it.
