Hi Beryl,
The design is actualy called Reticello, which have trapped bubbles in between the latticino strands.
As for a maker? The design was done by a few people, but looks more like a Salviati or Fratelli Toso piece to me.

Looks more like a merletto technique to me but never come across it used interspersed with bubbles. Seguso was the Murano master of merletto, but this is far to regular for his work as his merletto effect was much more random.
I'm not at all sure this is Murano and wouldn't be at all surprised if it turned out to be Bohemian, be interesting to see what Ivo makes of it.

Hi Paul,
I own 2 of the Seguso marletto pieces, and that technique is totally different from this piece.

Thank you for all suggestions, it definately gives me some avenues to explore, as I had no idea where to start. Hopefully Ivo will drop in too.
Thank you all
Beryl
