It appears to me to be emulating the Japanese globe/ Fish vase construction of decor - the side parts appearing to have come from a dipping and then crossing-over of the trail left - except that it appears to have been "dipped" in something akin to stained glass... I'm so green here I'm getting mouldy:P

Thanks for taking a look at the pics Sue, certainly a slightly unusual example, seems to bear similarities to a few different globes, but all rolled into one!
