Diameter across the base is 4", height 2". black with aventurine splodges. It is identified but as I've not seen one on the board before  I thought it's worth having as a quiz question to see if anyone else recognises it.  8)

Secondary question: it's lost its atomiser top, where might I find a replacement?

seriously, I haven't a clue Anne..............but might take a chance and say either Murano or Scottish, or Chinese or......... ;)

how about cannibalising a similar neck sized collar and bulb from a broken atomizer.

just a guess Nason...?

I don't know if this site may be of any help with the missing top, I think they also undertake some repairs:

I think some of the parts can also be found on ebay, although sourcing the exact sized components may be tricky.  :)

Paul & Greg, my thought was Nason when I saw it, but it isn't! I was very surprised when I saw the name on it...

Thank you both for the suggestions re the replacement... I don't have a broken one to cannibalise but the replacements on Greg's link look like the very thing. I'll measure the neck and see if they have a size match. :)
