This is a hand-blown art glass table lamp which is unsigned, but quite probably Murano. This vase-form was not converted from a vase to a lamp, but was manufactured originally as a lamp.
The body of the lamp is mostly clear cased over a pleasing soft white glass. There are multi-colored spatters and swirls floating in the glass. It is very becoming in its simplicity. As the pictures show it has a nicely ruffled 5-1/2 inch diameter rim. Please notice the dark brown stripe descending on the neck. It has a rough area which occurred at the time of blowing; it is not damage. This may be a pontil scar. I am not familiar with the way detachment was attained on a double-open form. It definitely however, confirms hand work.
The lamp is 27 inches high to the top of the finial. The glass base is 4-1/2 inches in diameter and sits upon a 5-¼ inch diameter base. The body is 6-1/4 inches at the widest point. The only flaw is some missing lacquer on a small part of the metal cap ( see photo ).
