    This one has a lot going on.
    At the bottom it is blood red going up to orange at the top with brass inclusions, inside it has a creamy layer. All covered with clear.
    It is quite a heavy piece and I thought maybe Murano but if you look at the bottom it has GILBERT engraved on it?

      The 'GILBERT' done by hand with some form of etching tool. Murano glass does not come signed with an etched name.

      These websites may help identify this item.

      Hmm hadn't noticed the above comment until I looked again after "vcal's" love (thanks for that), wondered if someone had known about Gilbert and put in some comments.
      I did realise it wasn't exactly an Italian name and I am aware of all the above links and sometimes they aren't a lot of help as I think the people wanting to obscure the origin of their glass may have read them too :)
      Also I have to disagree with Murano Glass not been signed as I have one that is. It is a pretty special piece too but unfortunately damaged. Maybe I'll post it one day.
