I got this lovely little vase in an auction lot, and have spent hours trying to identify it without success. I think possibly Murano but can't find anything quite like it. The signature could be a maker's name, because it looks like it might end in "glas". The red colour is only at the top and bottom. The pontil mark is rather rough, and the narrow base makes the vase a bit unstable. The top opening is also very narrow, so it's definitely "art" rather than a practical object. I hope someone can identify it for me, because I've given up! Or can anyone tell me what terms to search for? I don't know the name for this type of swirly decoration, although I think "cased glass" might be part of it.
