Very nice, made by Fratelli Toso in 1900 or just after, Phoenician style decoration. How tall is yours? A couple with different heights on page 60 Fratelli Toso by Leslie Pina.

Some different shapes:

Hello John,

thank you very much for your help.
Mine is 35 cm tall. So not the tallest one but still a good size. 

Have a good.

Anything over 30cm is great, I have seen a couple over the years when out buying but each was a lot shorter and badly damaged. Never managed to buy one but still hoping. The example in the book at 122cm truly is a freak!

I tend to think these Phoenician designs are a bit harder to find than the millefiori vessels from the same time period, assume they are less common but that is entirely anecdotal.
