This is a beautiful piece I found.

No markings. Highly polished flat base.

Blemish free crystal clear, the blue is very translucent, and the center feels like a matte black hole, absorbing, rather than reflecting light.

The piece is roughly 4" tall and 3" across, and weighs 1 pound 5 oz.

Murano? Swedish?

thanks for any answers

Thanks very much Lansen.

it just "felt" Swedish to me, because of the dramatic spare lines.

Appreciate the info.

Bob
