Adam, is it possible by swinging to get something to come out as flat and thin as that?  Wouldn't some sort of pulling or tooling be needed and could it be done without marking?

Adam D.

It's possible but would be very tricky and the thin end would be quite likely to flip over. I would expect a high failure rate, even if one had special tools.

They look not familiar, so my opinion is that they aren't made here (Murano-Venice). Or, as other possiblity, they can be a custom production for a special order. I have several custom productions of objects far from the usual venetian glass style and many architets and designer search in Murano somebody with the skills to realize their ideas.
