This is the second piece I picked up from Salvation Army. It was sitting with all the dishes and screaming buy me ! Not that you could miss it at 15" tall and that amazing shape. I think it's very "Art Nouveau" in style. The outside is satin finished but the inside is shiny white and pale orange speckled glass. The graceful handle adds a lot to it's height. It curves back into the bottom where there is a faint curled seam on the one side across the base. It almost looks like part of the design. It's not very wide at only 6" across the bottom. Now comes the hard part. There is a label but all I can make out is "made in" It doesn't look like China because the last letter isn't an "A". It's the remains of a straight line. So I'm hoping it's Italy or maybe even Spain. It has the look of a Gino Cenedese "scavo" (acid etched) piece design wise, but those a usually signed. Something this unusual can't be Chinese or can it ?? -Mike-
It kind of goes with this piece I bought a while back.
