Is there any age-related wear to the base? How it the pontil mark finished off?
Do you have the very close-up close-up setting on your camera? (The flower symbol with the "s" beside it)
I love the colours in the glass and the bubbles - but I cannot see the design/pattern in them clearly, to see how it was produced.

Looking at the silver work, which I can see far more clearly now, I am having a wonder if it might be contemporary, from Thailand. I've seen a lot of fabulous costume jewellery over the last few years, with beautiful "art nouveau" style silverwork around faux jewells and glass.
I've got a necklet, will post a pic.
Cheers, Sue (M)

 I am adding to this thread as I have also acquired (an extra piece from an auction lot) a very similar piece - 7" high.
I cannot find any marks on the metal so not sure if silver or not, the whole thing is very light, mine has a foot so I cannot see the base of the glass - the glass itself looks very interesting! Lots of bubbles - blue/green/greys - a bit iridescent like the surface of petrol! (use of silver chloride??)
I have seen all sorts of vague attributions for these but nothing concrete - so anyone know anything else about these?
I suspect anywhere from 1960's onward, but i wouldn't think any earlier than that and quite possible a lot later.
The first two pictures are with and without flash, the last picture is taken holding it up to the light.
