by the look of the stem I'd say Italian (Empoli, not Murano) from the sixties. May have had a lid at one time.

Hi, thanks for your reply.  However I am still looking.  I looked up your suggestion, and cannot find a maker or pattern, I just don't have the right resources.
I have some more info to add.
The glass has a churchbell ring to it. When clicked the ring lasts for an entire two seconds.  Also I see that the stem was attached to the scalloped bowl. The stem and base are very thick, while the bowl is very thin.  I am thinking more depression glass, because there is a lot of things in the glass.  Pieces of stuff that got in there during manufacturing.

Just a reminder the Bowl Itself is 8.5" across and 4" deep, overall height is 11".  This is very large for a compote, candy dish.....
