glasswizard:
Thanks Peter, I am sure you have come up with the answer. The thinness of the glass, the elongated stem point to Italian. I have a couple of other pcs. that have the same structure and have assumed Italian for them. So barring anyone else with more info, we can lay these two to rest. Again they were a gift, now where to display them? Terry

paradisetrader:
For me the first similarity I noticed was the knob.

It's a shame that usually when importers and particularly "branders"  like Raymor are involved, the identity of the manufacturer seem to get lost forever.He we have a "probably Moretti for Raymor" attribution by the seller which seems about right and implies Murano manufactue unless Moretti has factories elsewhere ?

The quality of these looks good to me and other quality glassware of suspected but unspecified Italian make has been seen on this board, along with a lot which was made for mass markets.

This also may be a good place to note our recent discovery that Carlo Moretti did designs for Pilgrim Glass in it's latter days.

Peter - I *think* that it was Roberto Moretti who worked at Pilgrim Glass.

Popular 50's & 60s Glass by Pina has some nice pictures of "Venetian" style glass animals designed by Moretti and there are copies of the actual catalog pages from 1969-72.

This is out of my area but ...  from what I have been able to gather by internet searches, Alessandro and Roberto Moretti were brothers from the renown Moretti family who immigrated to the US. They settled in West Virginia, the area rich in glass factories.  Roberto worked for Pilgrim.

Moretti Bros.

Thank you Connie and thank you for the link.

Another of similar style here and a new name to me

Alrose Murano Italian Art Glass Yellow Covered Dish

Note: Good pic of label which does NOT say Murano

glasswizard:
Yes I did notice it doesn't say Murano, but I think we are on the right track thinking Italy.
I have to comment on the colors, yellow and ameythist. Almost like my High School colors of Purple and gold, not a combo found too much in glass. Terry
