I was sold this piece as unattributed, circa 1900. It is green aventurin, and the enamelling (I think) is beautiful.
I wondered if it was Ferdinand von Poschinger. The enamelling certainly looks like other examples I have seen, and Poschinger was (and is) known to make green aventurin - see Alfredo's website for some examples, and a warning that they are still making it.
I have even seen a dark violet, matt iridescent Poschinger vase enamelled with very similar nasturtiums - unfortunately I missed out on buying it!
There is some wear to the base, the enamel and to the metal mounts, but it is in very good condition.There is no certainty that it is not new!
It is marked 127 . in the lid and the base in hand-painted gold enamel.
I would love to know what you think - even if it turns out to be brand new.
