Thanks, the direct eBay link is:
http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=290188508837

Very strange, but I suppose it does support the fact that the Marcolins did carry on working in Italy (not specifically Murano!), after 1994.

I'll have to double check, but I think the gray bird is the only one without a label or signature, so I suppose it could be Nason.

Hi Shannon,

It was the grey bird I was wondering about! It does not quite look like FM to me. I would have guessed V. Nason but it is difficult to know for sure.

Does your green fish have a label? This one is definately FM! Just curious as this could be from the early 1960's!

Thanks Ingela! Looks like I do have at least one Nason item in there. :-)

For some reason I thought the green fish was signed, but I just checked, and it is not. It doesn't have a sticker either, so I'm glad to know it is really FM Konstglas.

It is not yet Xmas morn here yet to know if  :st: bought me a better camera.....

If he does, I will then re-take some photos that will be hopefully better quality in this most interesting discussion here.  As I noted someone had mentioned something about the way the glass was worked.  So IF I have a new camera, I will re-post new pics to see if that helps whether it is FM piece, or Murano (Nason) piece.

This is one Pelican that has really *rippled* his own water......lol

This is a truly interesting topic my Pelican has started here.... ;)  and I too, am interested in knowing if it at all can be ruled one way or the other.....Thanks to everyone knowledge here in helping to figure this out  :chky:

Yes Santa brought me a new camera.  Hopefully better than the camera/phone I have been using. 

Let me know if these are better photos now...

These are OK, but if you want some hints on taking photos, try visiting my other web site: www.glassyeye.com and click the Photos & Imagery link.

Particularly: if you have a 'macro' setting (almost certainly - look for 'tulip' icon) this can allow you to get closer to the object, for more detailed shots.

Lastly, there is a small section on how to edit the photos to improve the appearance.

Thanks David E.  This *new* camera was not a big expensive camera....just a HP.  Anything has to be better than the camera/phone I was using...

I will continue to try to take better photos with a Digital. 

Sad part of the whole story is that years ago, I won numerous awards for my photography.  That was with SLR (Pentax K-1000)....not a digital camera. I have about 30 ribbons, and also was the Provincial Showcase Champion twice here for photography.  I use to do scenic pic, black and white, lightening, horizons, etc....but that was like 30 years ago....so I am only learning to take glass pic as something new......and will try better

I once had a eye for photos by my awards......but truly different subject matter now  :-\ :'(

Thanks...I will slowly learn.  Enjoyed your site  :clap:
