Ruffled top bowl - Murano or Bohemia?
« on: March 31, 2008, 04:26:00 PM »
This is an almost tortoise shell effect in the glass, with one or two splotches of colour.  Is it Murano?

Thanks

More likely Bohemian I think

Thanks for your reply :)

I have been looking at Bohemian glass and haven't found anything very similar.  Did you have a particular maker in mind?

Kralik tango glass has something of the same feel, but I didn't see anything the same shape or colours.

This one does have a similar colour and shape, but it still isn't the same, it is cased in clear glass and mine isn't.

Does anyone have any further ideas please?

Thanks

Bohemian glass is a minefield, there were dozens of companies and home workers and few of them still documented (if ever). Murano tends to be applied to anything multi-coloured but in reality I don't think its often very accurate.

I have just seen a documented (Truitt & Truitt, Bohemian Glass 1880-1914) Harrach vase in a marbly glass with very similar colours to your bowl, which inclines me even more toward Bohemia

I think Czech also - the book that Lustrousstone mentioned does indeed have several similar examples, as does Truitt volume II - Collectible Bohemian Glass 1915-1945.
