I wonder if anyone could please help me identify this large glass vase with twisted design around 32cm tall
No marks or signature but a large pontil mark
Many thanks in advance

Contemporary Chinese. This trellis topped style has been around for a few years; I used to see a lot of it in TKMaxx.  :)

They come with the trellisy bit in the middle too, and sometimes in black or white glass, from the recesses of my memories. And in different shapes.
I think it's got the correct roughly ground out round pontil mark. Not as rough as the first bits to come out, but perhaps not as neat as they can be now.  :)
