Javier is a moderator on the Murano board here  ;D

Gosh, since I didn't know that I sent another email with GMB in the topic.  Maybe he will reply to this post.
My fingers are still crossed!  ;D

Darn, finally something I could have helped with, and I'm too late! These pieces are in my Archimede Suguso book.

The candle holders in the book are blue, so the value may be different. Book value on those is listed as $200-300 each. Value on the bowl is given as $100-150. Of course, you can't put a lot of stock in book values. But these are very nice pieces, and not very common.

Thank you.  I was just curious as I had never seen any of his pieces before.  This way I know they are a really good find and we'll take very special care of them.  Who knows some day I may need to sell them to buy gas!

Thanks, everyone.   Nowadays it's not often I learn so much about glass in one go!

Opaline — Unless quoting an authoritative source I've always avoided the term as I have never been quite sure what it is.   Also I always ensured that an eBay listing involving anything that could be opaline included the word as a keyword.   Now I understand it, if I am correct, to be synonymous with alabaster / alabastro.   Or has it a wider meaning?   Thanks, Ivo.

Alabaster — Previously I was only aware of the S&W and Steuben production of this beautiful glass, although I had not intended my reply above to indicate that I thought that it was made exclusively by these two factories.   Now I know of three manufacturers, with the possibility of others.    Is the term alabaster reserved for this white plus one other colour combination of opaline glass, or has it been used for single colour pieces?

... and congratulations, Janice, on your lovely glass.

Just an addition to this thread although I know it is very old and the information is probably updated now.

According to the Stevens and Williams book The Crystal Years (R.S. Williams-Thomas) Stevens and Williams Alabaster (quoted in his reference on page 24, with the start of the word alabaster in lower case, although the title of the chapter is Art Alabaster with capital letters) was made in single colours as well.  He shows what looks like a green candlestick and also a blue bowl in single colours.  He says 'The articles were often designed in two colours, the body of the specimen being coloured, but all appendages such as handles, knobs and feet were of white or cream alabaster.'
