Is this a fake Murano Label? Thank you!
« on: November 08, 2007, 11:47:13 PM »
I found this bowl today and I looked at all the Murano labels and could not find this label. Thank you for any help.

Hi Beth, the label's not too clear so it's hard to make it out. Could you do a closeup of the label please? If your camera has a macro mode it may help to use that (it's usually a little flower symbol to show it's in macro mode), and then you should be able to get a good clear image from around 6-9 inches away from the label.

When I click on the picture I can make out Genuine Veneitan Glass and the bottom reads Made In Murano Italy.

Much better, thanks Beth. The initial across the banner look like I & E D, is that right?

Hello everyone!  My hubby took a much better pic of the label than I ever could.  Here it is, fake or real? Thanks again!

It is me again  ::) sorry but, I was also wondering who made this bowl? It has a footed bottom made the same way as the edge is. Thanks again!  :spls2:

Hi I suspect your label is an importer's label. I did find this http://www.burchardgalleries.com/auctions/1999/aug2299/aug2299r.htm see No. 74 , although they've interpreted the label as L & ED
