Where to find Murano nformation on the net
« on: May 17, 2007, 08:46:04 AM »
Hi,

I have recently bought a few pieces of 1950's Murano glass and have been trying to find information on the internet without success.  Can you recommend some sites where Murano is cataloged, with pictures so I can look for similar examples?  Something like Richard More's SmugMug index.

Thanks

The trouble is there's so much and dozens of web sites - where do we start? However, there are several books you could purchase as well - have a browse through Amazon. Ones by Leslie Pina will list the more popular and collectable items.

http://www.amazon.co.uk/s/ref=nb_ss_b/203-0587806-0146301?url=search-alias%3Dstripbooks&field-keywords=murano&Go.x=8&Go.y=6

Will give you a list of 67.

Just realised you're in Australia - do a search for 'murano' on Amazon.
