This beautiful piece is about 6.5" tall, and 7.75" across. The ruby red glass is heavy and much more clear than my photo shows. I believe photo 2 is the pontil, inside the hollow pedestal at the base of the bowl. The crystal base is hollow and also heavy but not hand-blown? Is this a fairly recent piece? Is it Italian? There are no marks. Thank you so much in advance for any help you can provide.
