Gorgeous!  Looks like 1930s Italian. But didn't Steuben do something similar?

I thought it looked rather like the Jozefina pieces that were being discussed here

Hey Lynne,

  I'll have to disagree with you on this one...this vase has a definite "Italian" look to it....the pieces you're referring to are Polish and VERY different in design..

It is the skinniness of the handles and the rings that reminded me of the Polish glass - but it is just a feeling and I am sure you are right.
Thank you very much!

Lynne - I thought the same thing when I saw it  :lol:

I am fairly certain that I saw the same or very similar item on a Polish Glass website.  The problem is which one  :roll:

Because evidently Lynne and I aren't as smart and all knowing as you, Blair  :roll:

I bow to your superior knowledge and promise to never question your attributions again  :roll:
