Emmi, it rather looks like the Lens vase on Marcus' SkloUnion website here: http://www.sklounion.co.uk/SkloUnion/Lens.html. Perhaps Marcus can confirm for you? :)

Hey Anne, thanks that was speedy. Yes that looks like the exact vase - a gorgeous hunk of glass.  Just nipped out for some fresh air betwen packing and monsoons, and came across it!   Emmi

PS Mine is a larger version with four rows of lens design.

I half-remembered seeing it on Marcus' site when I was helping with something on it. ;)

Thanks....I am not at all knowledgeable in this area, although I do seem to recognise the glass when I see it.  This one really impressed me so I guess I am going to have to find space in my brain to learn more about the complicated history of it all.(difficult when my brain cells are dying by the million each day now)
