I've seen a fair few of these green iridescent vases but not one in uranium, any thoughts as to who made this one?.

The rim is polished flat and there is no pontil mark.

4 inches in width and 3 1/4 inches in height.

Hi... The canes remind me of Murano canes from the early - mid 20th century.

As Sophie says, modern Chinese.  I recall very similar pieces being sold in petrol stations in the 1990s, usually in fancy boxes for around 10 each!  Not a bad mark up, considering they probably cost 50p at most if you bought a crate of 300....

Glass Animals & Figurines / Juvenile looking elephant
« Last post by Ambulance on Yesterday at 07:57:02 AM »
Hello all,

I acquired this very youthful looking, colorful glass elephant sculpture. I though it might be from Murano, but maybe anyone here has seen it before or can tell me something about its origins? Any and all help is much appreciated! :)
