Murano....but maybe not?
« on: December 12, 2007, 06:47:58 PM »
Hi,
This item (190180080086) just sold on ebay, and I was a bidder I did not want to ask earlier.  It is advertised as Murano which I can sort of accept but the red canes done look like Murano to me; as for the green cane towards the centre!
Am I missing the obvious or what is it with this weight?
Kind regards,
KarelM
ps: once again I realise what a biginner I am when I see these type of weights!

I thought Baccarat "Dupont" or maybe Boh. but had visitors coming so left a too low bid.
The way the canes were cut on the bottom is very typical Baccarat "Dupont" weights.

Also it was a no PayPal listing - I don't like to go too high with those.

Thanks!
Was the Boh. reference to Bohemian or a typo for "both"? I am sure(ish) it is not Bohemian but Bacarat sounds right...will hit the books and see what I find.
What intrested me was the lumped canes that dont look like complex canes as much as they look like a bunch of canes put together (I know this is in esence the same thing!) but Murano canes have a tendancy to be a clump of canes that have not been stretched to make a complex cane but just left at the same size.  Thats why i could sort of fall for the Murano attribution except for the two other canes mentioned in the first post.

I am not well versed on either Dupont or Bohemian (Boh) millefiore but my vote is Boh  :)

Nice  :)

How big is it?

I have a little one myself sans the date cane, can't show a pic as my computer won't read my memory sticks!

I hope someone recognizes the canes in the eBay weight - it's intrigueing  :)
I seem to recall having seen the "cross" type cane somehwere else but can't find where.
