So that's not like the Empoli I have. More like Chinese stuff I have, but I am not familiar with this pattern - although I'm sure I've seen it somewhere before.

Hmm, you can see the base in the first post - it's highly polished, flat and smooth.
Not a common feature of Chinese glass - but it is a very recent feature which I have started noticing in TKMaxx when I go for a nosey to see how well they're progressing.

I've got a massive combed Chinese vase, I do think this does look to be of rather better quality.
For a start - the colours have been chosen, not randomly grabbed at!  :ooh:

I don't think it's Chinese because the white inner is so thick and white. Chinese white linigs usually look like diluted milk. The colours are also subtle and not garish. And it's big but not huge! And the proportions are good.

And I was saying I think not Chinese because the base is polished off nicely - what I did say is that nicely polished bases are only now starting to appear on contemporary Chinese glass.

But the concensus between Lustrousstone and myself is not contemporary Chinese.

There are a lot of these kind of vases turning up at auction houses, being sold as "Murano type/style."
I have yet to see one with a label, but they are much better quality than the ones in TK Maxx.
I haven't seen the one in the pics above though. Very eye catching!

That might make Poland a possibility

But there is nothing to say that it isn't recent or contemporary, is there? I don't know enough to rule out Chinese.

Contemporary Polish also has to be considered. I've seen huge pieces of Polish glass at very reasonable prices. There the colours are considered and quite a skillful execution.

I think we've concluded it's nice and well made but we don't know  :24:
