freiheit
(326 items)

I didn't measure it but I think it is not bigger than 3 inches. It is in perfect condition and the colours are absolutely beautiful. When I got it from my great-aunt about 40 years ago, it still had a sticker on the bottom but the sticker fell off and I don't remember what it said.
Thanks for looking :)

    It would have said "Murano" or "Italy" or something
    Its called millefiori, which means "1000 flowers."

    A little stunner! Check out Barovier millefiori as a name to search.

    I think it's Fratelli Toso, it has similar murines as in mine, look http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/79133-fratelli-toso-1920s-vase

    Thanks MacArt! It does look pretty much the same. The time-frame makes sense too, because of the age of my great aunt and the fact that after 1945 items from Italy were no longer available in East-Germany. :)
