Is this really a Murano??
« on: November 25, 2007, 07:27:22 AM »
I purchased this from an estate sale and was told it was Murano. Was hoping someone could confirm this for me.  ^-^

Thanks for any help you can give! ~Betty   :)

I think not. I'm thinking Mexican or Chinese glass novelty item.

It does look like a Mexican piece to me also. Thanks for the reply!

I don't think so. Colour, shape and subjects are not Murano style at all. Never seen similar subjects.
It doesn't smell far east (china), so I suppose mexico made, as previous reply.

Sincerely
