Mtarfa glass vase.
Although not marked, it was next to one with the exact same shape and polished base, which did have a label.
First pic is with flash, second is without flash, but looks nicer in daylight. Curious to know what it would look like under UV light.

There are a couple with the same shape on ebay at the moment, listed as: "Vintage Signed Mtarfa Glassblowers Malta Mottled Vase" and "Mtarfa Blue Green Art Glass Vase, Signed". The latter has a label.

the colour looks like Isle of Wight tortoiseshell, but is the base smooth? if so, i don't think that's IOW, but Mdina perhaps.

Made by Mtarfa. This pattern crops up on many different shapes.

Might be Mtarfa from Malta. Their marks can be very crude sometimes.
