    So I'm sure this is not steuben but I can hope right! Found it at a thrift store my pictures don't show the color it actually is. Polished pontil and unsigned. If anyone knows anything or has one I would love to hear from you. Thanks in advance!

      It appears to be Stretch Glass. Probably not Steuben though. Several companiesmade the irridescent stretch glass. It is most likely one of these companies. I would lean toward Northwood and Fenton.

      Diamond Glass-Ware Co.
      Fenton Art Glass Co.
      Imperial Glass Co.

      I love stretch glass.Pictures never do these pieces justice.I have a similar one with a square footed base.BTW this is uranium glass.(If you've read some of my ramblings you're probably catching a pattern)

      This is definitely Fenton Topaz stretch glass cupped bowl. If it is 10" it could be worth up to $200, depending on it's condition and iridescent quality. The topaz stretch glass was started in 1921 and remained in production for most of the decade. Very nice find!

      I have it above my kitchen cabinets so I have not measured it, but its a larger piece so I would say its at least 10 inches. The color is almost a Peridot green with lots of iridescence. I would never have thought it was Fenton! So Topaz stretch glass by Fenton would be an accurate name for a description? Thanks for the comments I have not thought about this piece in a while.

      I think it is probably Fenton as well, but the color look more like their Florentine Green to me and the shape looks like the flared cupped bowl. Here is a stretch glass link to a Fenton page:

      pretty sure this is fenton. but it is not worth $200 like Mrj303 said. worth $75-$100. thanks for sharing.
