    A Cameo glass shade. It looks like it's a light shade of some description with a cut away section on the base which could be for a cable. A pale ice blue ground, followed by purple, which looks black un-lit, with a final layer of white. Featuring an alpine scene, the seller thought it might be German.
    I'd love to know who it is by, if anyone can say.

    Thank you

    From reading up on cameo glass I believe it's sand blasted rather than acid etched but still not found out anything about it.

      Thank you Mrstyndall. It's no Emile Gallé but it's pretty.

      Thank you IronLace. I wondered if it's part of a electric lamp. The notch on the bottom looks like it could be for a cable. Or perhaps it's the top part of a candle lit fairy lamp, they also often have notches to allow air in. To confuse things further the seller said it had no base when he got it but it did have something attached to the top :-S he also thought it was German but couldn't say why, perhaps simply because of the scene.
