Chinese Murano vase

Hi Ray,

I just knew someone would say that about the Murano vase! :lol:

Interestingly enough I know this and its pair were bought in Italy when my great-uncle went back on a reminiscing trip after being there during WW2 as I remember him bringing them home and telling us about buying them.

I know there are Chinese copies of these vases - I didn't know the copies were actually being sold in Italy as genuine Murano though!

So can you (or anyone else) tell me, how can you tell the difference between the Italian originals and the Chinese copies?
