Christine, that's a disturbing thought! I may be dealing with Frankenbird. I want to say I have seen more like this though...I will keep my eyes open for another example.

So, what do you guys think - Murano or not? The Toscany bowl on ebay sure looks like Murano glass. At least we know they are Venetian.

Toscany was an import company based in NY. At one time (around 1960) they specialized in Empoli Glass. I'm sure that they also imported some Murano.
