Hi wellcome to the board, I'd say made in Murano, Italy by Fratelli Toso 1970's - 1980's

hello, thank you for the info and for the welcome! also i was looking at some other posts and i forgot to mention the bottom, it sits very flat, and no signature or any stamp of any kind.

I agree - Murano, probaly Fratelli Toso.
