    I've had this for a few years, a thrift shop find I think, and never been able to find out the maker or seen another like it. It is 6" L x 3.5" H x 2" W, textured clear glass, no markings. Fairly heavy for its small size so may be leaded? Sometimes it feels like Viking to me... Does anyone know who made this? Thanks!

    UPDATE! I finally was able to identify this as made in Murano, Italy from a labeled example. The glass color is different, but the style and dimensions are identical and the other example is labeled! After much comparison and research, I have determined that this piece is made using an acid etching process called corroso which is fairly rare.

      Thanks for the loves guys, and comment Newfld. I despair in every finding out who made this piece! It is very high quality glass. I guess it could be a one of a kind, though if that were the case, I would expect it to be signed and it is not.
