      Sorry to say that this is not Tango glass, although the orange colour is reminiscent of it. This piece was made in China in the 1970s. I often see these listed as Victorian art glass. The article below has some more information.

      I agree with IronLace.The vases in different colours are quite popular here and often mistakenly taken for victorian

      Production of these continued for many years (still probably made today).

      These were a mainstay in US antique malls in the 1980s- 90s.

      They were retailed in the US through several antique reproduction companies
      who put out large mail order catalogs. The catalogs included glass, lamps, cast iron-- all sorts of popular collector items.

      The catalogs were a great help in identifying repros. Not sure where I put the copies that I had!
