This Vase has some designs that I'm not used to. It looks like the markings on the side of the vase have been hacked or cut on but all of the markings are actually tiny air -bubbles leaving a totally different look. I have been trying to find the maker and would love to hear how the air bubbles got Soo intense. Thanks
Lorraine, your photo's are very dark. I'm afraid I can't help much with those. If you retake photo's in Good Natural light (if possible) Bright light at a minimum, and place item on white background that will help a lot! Then, also include clear photo's of the whole item, a close-up of the bubbles you mentioned and also a good, clear pic of the base, and we can try and help you.
Just from what I can see here, I'd say it's either Italy, or a Studio artists piece. Those type signatures are very difficult to verify, just so you know.
Thanks Vicki, I'll do my best to get better shots
When you take your pics stand the vase upright. Stand back so we can see the whole vase. Take a pic of the neck--it looks like it has no neck, but I can't tell. Also the base or bottom. Is it glass or porcelain?
Vicki mentioned Italy and I agree. Neckless glass vases are often made on Murano (In Italy).
I can't quite see well enough in the pictures, but I think it is possible your vase is enamel. If so, the luminous parts would probably be ginbari, which is a Japanese foil technique. When the foiled areas are enameled, they appear extra lustrous.
