vase? - ID = Lorraine Glass Industries, Canada

Hi!
Would I be right in thinking that this vase is by Jan Beranek or perhaps Jan Kotik? Help please!

It doesn't look vintage CZ to me... the colours seem unfamiliar, maybe murano?

Hi! Thanks for your responses!
No, I don't think it's new at all but yes, the colour isn't what you'd expect - I'm sure it's not Eastern, it has a much better quality feel to it. The only other thing I can think of is maybe Chalet Canada? It's certainly got the weight and definitely the colour of orange Chalet. Would anyone concur? (Using that word always makes me think of DiCaprio in 'Catch me if you can' when he's pretending to be a doctor!) Anywayup, would that be a possibility?

Chalet does not tend to be so decidedly lopsided, squint and skew-wiff.
How is it finished off? (base shots always help)

Your pictures are too tiny, they don't blow up. You need to make the longest dimension about 700 pixels.

What size is the "vase"? I'd be more inclined to Chinese too.

Thanks for all input. I think it was my pic that was askew and not the vase. My back movement is very limited and I can't always get things lined up. The base is a trefoil; I hope you can see clearly on the pic but I can always take another if not.

All the best, a2

 Not Chalet, I'm pretty sure.
