Two Dolphin paperweights (Murano ? )
« on: April 08, 2008, 05:58:00 PM »
Evening
           Today i bought these two Dolphin's with some other glass i was wondering if anyone can tell me if they are Murano or Chinese please and if either how old well about circa, they look the same but there is a subtle difference as one is a bit wider and the tail shorter, also the red goe's further into it's head and the snout is a fraction bigger, both have a little wear on the base but not to much.

These could not be whitefriars could they, wonder if they were made by the same hand any help would be appreciated.

I'd say Chinese or Eastern Europe, can we see the bases please. Definitely not Whitefriars
