No marks on the base?  My guess was American studio glass. Rather than feathering (fenicio), it looks like it was created by twisting the blown gather in an optic mould, adding more glass, and then again twisting the gather in the optic mould, but in the opposite direction. But I've been wrong more than a few times.

Thanks David I guess maybe that accounts for the perfection of this piece.  I was blown away about how perfect the what I thought might be pulled feathering.  Hopefully someone will know the maker.  Again thanks for your comments.

It looks a little like the Neolitico glass technique .

I see what your saying John.  I found some pieces that were Vintage Murano BAROVIER Ercole, Barovier & Toso.  You may be on the right track.

Your vase looks a little thin for neollitico, as they were heavily cased in clear glass. In the book Barovier by Marina Barovier, she describes neolitica glass as "an opaque mixture, resembling the texture of semi-prcious stone." I think the shape is wrong, too. Looking at the vase again, I think I was wrong in suggesting that it was twisted in an optic mould twice in opposite directions.  I think it was twisted once and I'm seeing the rear of the vase through the front.


Here's a vase by Michael Worcester that was made in the way I described.  It's hard to believe its not fenicio but I watched him make one.

Yes since its not thick glass like murano usually is maybe it's not.  Maybe a american maker.  May be hard to identify.  From what I have seen of the fenicio the glass looks to be applied to outside.   This pattern is in the glass vase.  You can slightly feel the pattern on the outside.  One other note the glass may be crystal instead of just glass maybe that is why it is thinner.   What about Kosta Boda.   Thanks

Kosta Boda would be signed.  If you're in the US, I would still think studio glass.
