Do you mean lot no 9? A turquoise vase? Looks right to me. :)

Editing to add;
But Gary says I'm completely wrong. Gary will be right!

yes thats the one - the rim just seems wrong! Maybe its the angle the picture is taken at? Need to see the base.
if it is what shape is it?

Sorry, I don't check shapes or catalogue numbers.
I just look at the glass and how it has been made. That is a known and very distinctive colourway, it couldn't be anything else. (I don't think so anyway.  ;) )

eta. I'm wrong!

I'm not sure - it looks like Monart but there is just something about that feels wrong - can't really explain why! The shape just seems off, unless it's just a really weird camera angle.
Come back Gary and give us your opinion, then I can ask for a base picture!

I do suspect a weird angle - probably taken from an angle slightly above the piece, looking down on it, which will make the rim look overly large and the base appear diminished in size, rather than taking it from straight on, actually LOOKING at the glass. (grrrr, why don't folk LOOK at what they are trying to represent!)

I wonder if it could be one of those Czechoslovakia ones? - similar colours to the one pictured on Ysart glass .

I'm wrong then Gary?
Not Monart at all?
ooh err! (and thank goodness no hat eating was involved!)
All the "cellophane glass" I've seen has been orangey browny and clear, with aventurine. Are we considering the unknown Czech maker which does the combed bits with mica for this, or yet a. n. other unknown Czech maker?
