Hello all you informative glass lovers

I am back again with my latest buy. I only bought it as I loved the shape but was intrigued by the pitted body of this vase.

As you can see by the pictures it is a hand blown vase with a crimped foot and a overturned drip lip. It has a rough unpolished pontil. The body is rough and pitted. I don't know if the pitting is intentional or if its been buried or some one has tried to age the vase? Either way I like it and reminds me of a Galle vase but I may be influenced by the colour and shape of this strange vase.

As always thank you in advance to any pointers - I have search and searched but not come up with a name of maker or age - It does "feel" antique or at lease vintage.

With best regards

Glass Amore

The technique is called scavo and aims to imitate buried glass

Thanks Christine

I will add that to my search. I was at least on the right track by saying it looks like it has been buried or gives the impression it has.

Maybe made by Lafiore.  The base finish and the vase reminds me of their pieces.
