I've only found references to tortoiseshell glass from an Empoli company but this is not quite the same as that type of glass imho

cheers

Mel I'm sure this isn't the same  :'( but there are similarities...however it is signed and has a label so maybe not the same as yours?  it's a smaller size but...

Mel they do look remarkably similar but they don't show a base shot on that auction and I wonder if that one might have had a flat polished base rather than a polished pontil mark?  Just trying to find a get out clause here  :)

Patterns (and colour) are often on the surface or just under. The colour is the expensive bit
