The base is not the typical shape for any of the Scottish makers, and the design is unusual ... but I would not rule out Vasart.   An interesting piece.

Alan I shall try and take a couple more base pictures at different angles so to make it out easier

Peter Holmes or John Deacons are possibilities, worth asking them.

Signature is sandblasted. No idea who though.
Edit myself,
When looking at Astas pieces they all seams to have a smaller round opening, not squered or cornered openings as Murano.
And sorry if my first coment was unclear, my first tongue is Swedish:)

It was an extension of Pauls first mail:
"then how about thinking Scandi  -  apparently similarly coloured and cut designs were produced by both Kosta and Nuutajarvi-Notsjo.
I know we all mostly just assume Murano, but there were others making related patterns.              Just a thought :)"

I can see how it looked confusing but I too was showing that there are others doing this patterns.
I have seen very simular objects as the first one here in Sweden, with the blue colour and the clear lightblue over (I don't find any images of it at the moment).
I don't say it is Swedish, only a possibility that it can be.

Agreed.  Baccarat Dupont, 1920s - 1930s.

looking back at Jonas' first comment, and in the light of his later words, it does appear that the intended meaning of the original post was perhaps a little less than clear  -  have to say I took it that Jonas was affirming Sue's piece to be Asta Stromberg.      It now seems that those comments were not intended as a definitive id. for the Scandi factory, but a possibility only.**            Regret I became lost when looking at the various links that Jonas posted, and don't know which one we were being directed to.

Repeating my earlier comment about having little knowledge of these things, my reasoning remains rather basic, but would draw attention to what appears to be a constant feature of the pieces - apart from Sue's - that are pictured in this thread.            Those pieces depicted that are quoted as being from what I assume is the Gulf of Venice, all appear to have two submerged colours, not one as with Sue's  -  is this a valid point, perhaps, when attempting to differentiate between Scandi and Venice??

In Leslie Pina's 'Fifties Glass', the author speaks of Swedish sommerso pieces - and shows items having clear over one colour only, so that looks to answer my earlier question.

**  assuming Jonas first tongue isn't English then, of course, my compliments on what is obviously a none the less very good grasp of English. :)
Oke, thank you both members for your help. Regards, Luus
