Hi there: I have no idea what to call this shape as not a dome, or egg shaped, or dump.....the best I can call it is *pinched*. So correct me if that is the wrong term. (Might it be Murano) ?? Clear glass with swirls of blue and black colors. Seems to be made very well.
~ Concave bottom and polished bottom
~ Bottom does show Good Wear
~ pinched / oblong Shape
~ 5 inches long x 1.75 inch wide x 2.5 inches tall
~ Weighs about 1.72 pounds
Just curious to find out what it is. Have not found anything to give me a for sure ID. Still good to look at, and to use for holding papers. It is quite nice. The more I look at it -- the more I like it.
Any ideas on the makers / age / or any info at all? I have no clue and not finding much on the internet using the term * Pinched PW *
Thanks for looking. Any ideas welcome.
