Could be 'tourist-y' Murano, but could also be 'Chalet', from Canada.

Thanks Leni,
I think youre right, ive just seen some very very similar pieces by Chalet :D
it doesnt feel right for Murano, its the way the clear glass reflects the
light, but super Chalet examples on www.mblaisgallery.com
I do notice a lot of Chalet is signed and mine hasnt got one :-\
thanks again,
Andy :-*
