I bought this vase yesterday because of its 70's mustard yellow colour, and I initially thought it would be a Scandinavian vase. It has a white interior, cased in the outer coloured glass. The base ' pedestal ' has been added to the bottom, it looks like glass has been trailed round and then flattened to give a nice flat base. It is marked to the base with ' ?? italia 81 ' I think, but I cant read the first bit. Is there any one on the board that can guide me in the right direction ( as usual!! ) Its a large vase at 11" tall and approx 5" across.
