I had originally posted this question last year...but I had incorrectly posted pics, so did not want to post to that thread again...thus new one ..hope that is ok ..

Hi all,
I have in my collection this set-apple is 3.1lbs and 5"H, pear 4.6 pounds and 7" H. I have been unable to pin down maker or age...
Also --when looking down on pieces-where stem overlaps piece-lines can be seen --I believe these are due to refraction of glass layers (for lack of better word)-but fear they may appear to be damage or "heat check" like marks.......
Opinions appreciated, as if I want to list for sale...I want to be sure these are not damaged or perceived as such...

THANKS  !!!!

ps- I have seen them listed as Seguso and Barbini....for what that is worth  :huh:
