Hi. Not sure what I have here. Can anyone help? At first I thought Murano, but now I am thinking Scandinavian. What do you think? Thanks very much for looking  :)

It looks far more like Murano to me. Unable to suggest a factory, however.

With these tiny controlled bubbles and the colour variation it looks Czech to me. I would hazard a guess at Mstisov.

A recent buy of mine

I'll stay with Murano. In "Pizzicato" the bubbles are more vertical, that is, they go up the vase in a stream. In Patti3435's vase, the bubbles are more horizontal, they go round the vase.  The colours on the first vase don't seem right for Mstisov.

Also, Adam I would guess your piece is one of the pieces made at Karlovarske Sklo after production of Mstisov moved there. 

I'm open to correction on thsi one, though.

David, I bow to your superior knowledge in Czech glass. I think Karlovarske and indeed Mstisov are more common up here in Glasgow (re my vase). Skrdlovice is less common and Chribska is everywhere.
