And then to think I almost didn't buy it.
Luckily the antique fair was close to home so I went back for it.
And the price was so low  :) :o I thought oh well, it can always be used in the kitchen.
I'm glad so many people got direct or indirect enjoyment out of it.

I thought you might like to see this.  Sold through Sotheby's in 2007 under Russian Sale Works of Art.

'A silver-mounted coloured glass claret jug, Adrian Ivanov, Moscow, 1908-1917
the tapering orange and yellow body cut with diamond facets within elipses, the handle and collar with chased bands of stylised grapes and vine leaves, knop finial, 84 standard
height: 29.2cm, 11 1/2 in'

I have seen uranium glass used in Russian Glass and dredging my memory, something makes me think I also have seen a two colour overlay glass piece in a museum collection in Russia, but as I recall that was dark green over yellow I think.  No makers label on it though as I remember checking.

However, the shape and the notching up the neck of the body look familiar as 'VSL' identifiers perhaps, so an option is that the body is VSL and the silver is Russian.
