Leni - I take your point about not making the assumption...............although I meant it more in the "just my luck it'll turn out to be China" way.
Tigerchips - thanks for the link - I loved seeing their glass and there are a few bits I will be happy to snap up if I see them around! However, they have flat cut tops on their pieces, and this vase has a natural finish - yep...........definitely getting to grips with the jargon :lol: .
Ivo - I've seen quite a lot of Polish glass recently, but all with polished pontils, so perhaps this will turn out to be Romanian.
Thanks to you all for taking the time to look.
