    A wild card here - Something I think may be Harrach Etruscan/Horistmus vase dating to approximately 1860. What's anomalous about it is the figural transfers which I don't recognise as being Roman or Greek. Most Harrach vases of this type generally have romanesque/grecian style figures on them, but these look Asian. So that's a little unusual. Also these pieces quite often have much more orange on them. Anway, I'm no expert and thought the transfer designs on this vase were exquisite in their detail and at £15 I obviously had to have it. Stands 10" tall.

    More on these type of vases (even if mine may not be Harrach) : http://www.glasscollector.net/Blog/glass-notes/harrach-documented-1860-classical-period-vases/

      Me neither Sylvie - waiting for someone to let me know.
      But here's an interesting link that Brian (Project_Harrach) provided me:

      Hi Phil...I first saw it I thought Richardson...sooo!.. I think it might be British by Richardson, quite early....they did do this oriental designs on opaque white glass and use that ‘Greek look’ affect...on a lot! of Classical Greek figure vases, which often gets mistaken for Harrach...just thought and maybe somewhere else for you to look!...:-)
