Hi,
Any thoughts on this one?

Its pontil mark is concave and slightly rough.
Feels heavy(ish)considering its size.

Ht  15.5cm ( a bit over 6.0Ē )
Wt  375gm

Would appreciate any help re its identity.
Many thanks for looking.

Scott

Definitely not Murano and I don't think it's 1970s Italian airtrap. My guess would be 1880s ish Bohemian air trap

Hi Christine,
Many thanks for your reply - sounds as if i might have got the Victorian bit right: Iíve no idea whatís
entailed in the making of air trap glass - apart from the obvious!
I have to say itís an incredibly attractive vase.
Thanks for your help  :)

Scott
