Looks neither - but it is old. Could be British (Nailsea? Sunderland?) or French/ Belgian (Liège). Could also be Spanish (La Granja, Gordiola) or Portugese.  I suggest you just wait for all the suggestions which it isn't and then strike them off your list as you go.  Congrats on a fine piece.

Thanks

No problem. It weighs 607 grams and stands 8.25in/21cms tall and 6.5in/16.5cms across the top.

Not sure if this helps - or is relevant - but it does rock ever so slightly - and if it's unclear from the picture of the base, there are four rough marks in a square around the centre.

Any further info very gratefully received...
Many thanks, Anthony

I've no idea about the marks but someone might do...possibly to do with where it was removed from a gadget? or what is left of the pontil mark ?  It might indicate a possible age for it as well as the way the handles are applied. It's very lovely,  have you checked it under a blacklight?  I don't think it will glow green but it might.

Just to show because it's often quite hard to find pics of items like this, this is attributed to La Granja (I'm afraid I have no idea whether or not it is).  It's enamelled not spatter glass but the base blank looks similar.

again I have no idea if this attribution is correct but these are attributed as Bayerische Wald, German glass c.1920 and have spatters on white base glass.  Not the same type of spatter as yours, much less controlled, but perhaps that might be another region to be looking in for the source?
