I reckon we should be looking at Kane's suggestion rather than Chinese.
It is large and bright, isn't it? :)

Yes it is very large, bright, heavy and colorful.  If it is Brazilian is there somewhere you could look up info on that? What exactly does that mean?

It looks complex, colourful and bright, contemporary studio sort of thing. Romania maybe? It is almost sort of Ioan Nemtoi (ish).

Is there a signature anywhere around the bottom edge close to the base?

Nope there are no signatures at all or marks like that of any kind.

Forget Ioan Nemtoi, sorry. It is not remotely in his league!
Romanian, perhaps, even Lithuanian?
Michelle, the general opinion is that it is brand spanking new, in a style (large, brightly coloured, very heavy,) that is currently appearing from many, many different places all over the world.....

It definitely isn't new, vintage maybe, it has been around quite awhile.

Perhaps the last 10 years or so?
That might be enough time to get a bit of age-related wear on it, particularly if it's a soft sort of metal (the glass) used to make it.
I really do not believe it's any older than that.
Certainly far more recent than retro, definitely not vintage.
I suppose it depends what you mean by the words!
I'd put "retro" on things from '50s-70s, others might include the '80s.
Vintage, I'd put around the deco period, '30s-40s.
(The '50s are bad kitsch and best forgotten!)

Maybe 70's or 80's then it's retro I guess.

LOL...the vintage/retro debate.

It just looks put together to well for it to be Chinese. And if it were Chinese I would suspect it would be more 'garish' in the colours used.

The colours in this seem to blend quite well and the foot on the piece really sets it off. It just seems more thought has been put into than most chinese churned out pieces.

I am not too familiar with Brazilian makers of glass, although I have seen pieces about and they are very well made and quite colourful without looking 'chinese cheap'.

But then again, you can't discount some other countries that have produced glass from around the 80's. it is quite a nice and bold piece. The colours slightly remind of a Vittoria Ferro piece I own.
