Such a slick design, I love it!! My vote would be for Czech.

ZBS was just an idea -- it might still be Murano 8)
>> Link to a basket in a similar colourway on German ebay with a Murano label (I am not sure about the Seguso / Poli attribution)

Unfortunately, Flavio Poli has turned into a generic word like Holmegaard is used for anything bright with white interior, Loetz for anything iridescent, so on & so forth.

The colours in that basket look to be a little different, the basket appears dark blue and light blue, the fish is dark blue and bluey green (more green than blue). Tricky comparing tones like this. ;D

Scandinavian anyone? :D

Hi John,   Nice striking piece of organic glass sculpture!  Have you tried searching via. Pina Sinoretto?   I seem to recall seeing something very similar to this whilst browsing.  ::).  Here's another sculpture that  has the sommerso effect even though it is a significant difference to yours.

Thanks Otis (my apologies for the delay), Sinoretto's work seems more figural and not quite as abstract as this fish/badger/snail. ;D

Bumping for another 'airing'.

it's not an Exbor piece is it?  I'm sure you've already exhausted that angle and someone else would have said if it was, but it was just a thought  :-[

It's hard to tell with colours but this pear reminded me of your fish

I am open to all possibilities m, Exbor does seem unlikely though but only because their fish are well documented. Is this fish too abstract for Murano? Massive generality I know, probably easy to shoot that idea down in flames....
