Murano concentric - not W/F or Caithness
« on: July 09, 2008, 08:31:55 AM »
This paperweight looks more like Murano to me.  Anyone think it is Whitefriars/Caithness?

I'm afraid with this particular seller I'm always inclined to totally ignore the attributions and draw my own conclusions - as Nic knows only too well, just 4 items out of the listed 31 are actually Holmegaard and I'd tend to think that this level of inaccuracy is representative of a lot of the attributions made.

Isn't the seller a GMB member?

I've been wondering who this is,

I remember another member mentioning the name in another post (nothing wrong)

Maybe, I'm confusing it with someone else, I hope so
