I really don't know what it is that I have bought but it caught my eye from a distance and anyway, here it is. I thought it was a bit of soffiati at first as it reminded me so much of this bit: http://www.glassmessages.com/index.php/topic,43932.0.html
Like that one, this is very finely blown and has a neat folded rim around the foot. While hunting around looking for info the shape looked similar to Venetian wine glasses from the 15th and 16th century. :spls:
It does not strike me as being that old, can't put my finger on exactly why but could it have been made much more recently 'in the style of'.
There is a small snapped pontil mark, quite a few air bubbles here and there, some gold leaf on the foot and a wobbly rim. It is 12.5cm tall, diameter at the mouth is a little larger than at the foot.
Any ideas at all would be very welcome.
