 :) They could easily be related, couldn't they?
I know nothing about Italian glass. I can do "oohs" and "aaahs" but that's about it. ;D
I'm going to sit back and see if I can learn.  :)

So I ran across this piece doing some online research. I know this is just throwing it out there, but the cane work, thickness of the glass does remind me of Seguso's work. Here's the link.

Might be something to go on?

Two different eras to my eye. Your comport lookslike it could be Webb Lemonescent, think it matches the vase mrvaselineglass posted about here:

John!! You did it! The vase in the link is a spot on match to the compote! Just went to the site and it's absolutely Vaseline glass. Looks to be possibly the Victorian era. Now I need  black light and to find out the artist. I have 0 knowledge on Vaseline glass! Outstanding work John! Thank you!

Jason could you please post a photograph of it against a plain white background?
I would really love to see what the piece looks like in daylight without the effect the black background makes to it.

Thank you.
