Many thanks for your replies!

The base colour of the vase is a deep green and the outside colour of the vase varies from a bronzy colour to maroon and then depending where the light hits the vase it turns into a green or gold.

It is a very cute little thing!

I have recently acquired this vase at a local thrift store. I have seen it on eBay attributed to Tamara Aladin but Iím not even sure if it is scandinavian at all.
The vase is approx. 28,5 cm high, no mark or label.
If anyone could help with an ID I would be very thankful.

thanks in advance

Thank you Lustrousstone, well there's a thing! Wouldn't have thought of that - I know almost nothing about Japanese glass. Looking at the Google images I see what you mean about the colours. I also have at least one other vase which may also be Japanese then.

I might start with Japan for that colour palette; Hineri, Kamei?

Have just acquired these two rainbow lovelies. Really nice colours and condition. And for a change there are some signs of ageing on the bases, and the ground pontils are nice 'n shiny. So not at all matte in appearence! I reckon they are probably Czech as the colours are very nice and a bit Chribska-ish. I'm guessing by the scratched bases they could be 1960s. Small one is 200mm and larger one is 230mm. I wasn't so keen on these when I got them but once washed and put in the daylight they're really nice.

Any information welcome, I've not been able to find anything on 'net or in my reference books.
Glass / VERY LARGE but not that heavy...?

Ok, another large vase. This is 500mm tall and one of a pair. Not massively heavy or thick glass, cased white inside. Has some bits of copper coloured aventurene. Nice colours. The bottom has been ground with a matte finish and does have a matte ground pontil (I hardly want to say this but I just have, I can't deny it - you can see it in the picture).

My only hope here that it is maybe not (for a change) Ch****e is that it is not as heavy as one might expect. I've not been able to find anything similar. Maybe another one of those mysterious non Murano 'Murano' vases made in Italy? Any opinions welcome.
