This cased glass pot is 6" high x 7" diameter, no label, no maker's mark. The body and bottom are unpolished, rough glass with applied brown glass handles and an orange interior. It appears to be dirty or dusty, but I gave it a good soaking and scrubbing this was the result. The vase is translucent when held to bright light. It appears to be scavo glass, which approximates the look of Roman glass which has been buried for centuries. Several folks on glassmessages suspect it to be the work of Lafiore, a Mallorcan glass maker. After some research, I discovered that several Italian makers, including some Murano makers, also made/make scavo glass. I sent an email and some images to Lafiore but did not hear back from them.
