VASE, base 3 1/8 "Dia then it rounds to 4". 2.5" up it starts a spiral design smaller to larger as it graduates uptake spiral at it thinnest start 3" for the bottom and go to exactly 3" above this ending at 6" - then the top is 2" above this . The vase shape as seen, is smaller at base to 5.5" did at the top- Shiney glass inside etched glass outside and at the rim of the top. Clouded look on entire outer side. No signature or markings anywhere, it came to me with glass powder all over it as if it was NEW??? They were in the edges around the spiral design.
1ST DIBS is the website I purchased it from, I find out that an Antique dealer back east in US listed it for sale as MERANO Glass, when it showed up0 it looked like something from a CHEEP department store, then I started to return it only to have the 1st DIB site contact drag our correspondence out till my time period to return it was up!!! They said they had experts on staff but couldn't confirm ANY thing about it, did not provide me with information AT ALL, and said it was Circ 1968... They then give me this message--> ""Before I can agree to such action I firstly need to establish whether it is indeed Murano glass or not. I have reached out to the seller asking a few questions and putting what you have said to them. In addition, I have reached out to one of our Art and Design specialists to simultaneously investigate."" Then they never er got back top me $335.00 for a pice of what looks to be JUNK!!! ""
Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry.
I'm sorry to hear about your troubles on 1stDibs.
I can't tell from your description how tall this is - is it 6 inches?
Thanks to confirm,
