It reminds me of Gambaro & Poggi's lion head paperweights. The glass looks like something Mario Gambaro would make a few years back. I wonder could it be G&P. They do the nicest things.

Oh, gosh, sorry - I was sure I'd replied to this thread.

Sue, I see what you mean about it being fumed. From memory, it's not quite so iridescent as that, though. The colours are also quite broken up. I'll dig it out again next time I have chance, and double-check. Nice vases, though!  :)

I did have a look for G&P glass, but nothing leapt out in my searches. The closest I've come is, today, spotting a millefiori vase much in the style of Bucella Cristalli and bearing identical applied putti.

The question is... did BC make glass like this, and also like the controlled-bubble pitcher with the lion head in the D&A auction above?
