Would love an ID on this or a gesture in the right direction. Seen some Iitala stuff and other Scandinavian artists with this style. Unmarked, stands 7 3/4" tall. Thanks in advance for any help!

A bubble open to the outside like that is most likely Polish like Krosno.

Thanks so much for the reply! Thanks to your suggestion I've already found another just like it listed on Chairish. I'll do a little more digging to try and confirm :)

Kinda Similar to Bo Borgstrom for Aseda also, although they tend to be Bi-colored :)

I would have said Aseda too, and the Borgstrom designs aren't always cased in coloured glass.
The colour and shape remind me of a Gral-Glas range though, so it might (might) be German.

Thank you for all the information. Not familiar with most European glass so this is a nice expansion of knowledge. I think I have confirmation that this is Krosno. It is missing the tumbler that goes with it. Apparently it's a bedside decanter or "tumble up" ?? Never heard of a tumble up before.

Ah! The shape of the top makes sense now.  :)
