Murano Paperweight?
« on: March 25, 2007, 08:52:28 AM »
I bid on a Victorian Dump paperweight with internal flowerpot and along with it came this cane paperweight. Am I correct in thinking that it is Murano?
Regards
Ronnie

Yes, you are correct in your thinking that it's Venetian Italian from Murano.

Thank you for your response. I am adding a better (smaller) picture now that I have had help from Max - thank you - in how to use Glass Gallery.

It certainly looks to be from the same family - the rose-type cane is a lovely looking cane.
