Another Ebay find. ID please.
« on: December 13, 2006, 03:33:47 AM »
I picked this up last week. It's an older Murano weight. What I would like to know is who made it. I particularly like the 'picture' cane in the center.

By a somewhat circuitous route I found out this is by Archimede Seguso.

...this worries me....
i try to watch all of ebay...but that item did not come by!!
I have noticed this on several Items...for example if one goes to the German ebay there are loads of weights that you do not see on the .com site even if the german one mentions "paperweight" instead of only briefberschwrer!

I got it almost a year ago. The picture in the listing was really fuzzy and bad but I had seen weights like this before so I knew it was "one of those cool flower weights" from the fuzzy pic.
