    This approx. 6" tall yellow and clear crystal bubble glass vase looks like some of the rarer Blenko pieces described as "colored cased bubble glass" on a Blenko collectors site, and the elements (but no perfect matching examples) line up with other Blenko pieces I've found, and there are no resources I'm aware of that can give definitive proof of origin/era. My second best guess is that it is a good piece of Murano. Please HELP. Thanks in advance for your help with this head-scratcher. Cheers!

      I did a quick search through the Blenko 62-71 catalogs and didn't find a match for this vase. If it's Blenko, it's probably not from those years (unless I missed it).

      I have recently seen one that is identical to yours but in a rich cobalt w/ the same clear handles and rough pontil.

      Thanks guys, yeah, I have changed tack, I'm wondering if it's just some (not cheap) Italian tourist glass. It's so heavy and mesmerizing to look at, but I'm still at a loss. Thank you so much for taking the time to look into it and get back to me! I really appreciate it.

      Sharkey, I saw that too, and it was listed as Blenko, hence my trip down that rabbit hole. There's one on eBay now that seems the same only Cobalt. Again, says Blenko. SMH.
