Glass / Re: Pink glass vase with thin metal rim and strapping ID please.

Hello Chopin. Yes, Phoenician glass...I Googled and found several pieces. So, I got the Stanley knife out and set to work...luckily, the metal cam off quite easily. I quite expected to find damage but there isn't any. It is perfect. Quite why someone would go to all that trouble of adding the metal work, I don't know...maybe they were an art or design or metal work student and decided to have a play around. All I need now is someone to xome out with "your vase is by Mr Art Glass (see what I did there lol) and he was based in New York and his work fetches zillions of dollars but...the metal work has to be intact!!! Thanks everyone for your help.

I think it's a very unusual piece and, at 10", quite striking.  Nothing in my books so far  for Engberg, is it definitely CJ? The 66 is probably the model Number.  If it was enberg it would translate as "a mountain", which would be an apt name for the piece.

I figured that this would be a pretty common item, so I didn't give enough information.  The sculpture is solid glass (six pieces cemented together), quite heavy (6.6 pounds on my bathroom scale). It stands 10 inches tall and is 7 inches at the widest. I'm not being allowed to upload a 113k image...

I also watched it. Was glad to get the info they did provide. Didn't agree with the final winner, but it was a personality thing, not a skill  thing.
