    Could you get close ups of the bubbles and the twist against a plain background please? And a top down view, and a close up of the base.

    First pic it is upside down. 3rd pic is correct orientation. It is a decanter. The flat part at the neck is the top and would have had a stopper. Most likely from the Empoli region of Italy

    If you're thinking genie bottle style, then not Empoli. And I doubt that's where it's from, anyhow. It has a fire polished base and utilises what's sometimes called soda glass here - random differently sized bubbles, as in Biot glass. Neither of those things are characteristic of glass made in Empoli. Shape is all wrong, too.

    I do agree it's missing a stopper.

    Ol, I'm confused. No openings at all? The big end doesn't look open or is it? Hard for me to tell. If it is that is a weird looking vase

    An odd item for sure. No openings then it can't be a vase. 12" tall. Not sure what the diameter is. Almost looks like something you could darn socks on. Fancy one at that :confused::confused:

    It would have had a long thin pointed top stopper.
