Glass fish - maybe Pirelli?
« on: August 10, 2008, 03:08:50 PM »
Hi, I manage to find and win this fish on E-bay! Is it perilli, or some other craft's man? (I'm sorry, but the photo is the one off e-bay! My camera is refusing to loads pics onto the comp :o) If you could tell me anything, I'd be grateful!

Mod: Sorry.  :( Photo removed in line with board copyright guidelines

Hi Breezy  :)

I'm sorry that I had to remove the photo with your posting.  I'm afraid if the photograph isn't actually one that you took, then we are unable to host it here, as the copyright belongs to the Ebayer seller.  

In the meantime, have you seen Frank Andrews' excellent article / site on Pirelli glass?

Edit:  Thanks for the new pic.   :D

I've got a nice little collection of Pirreli and I immediately thought no.
But, slow down, the eyes are right, so I'm tempted to say it is, need to get Franks verdict though.

Maybe, needs to be moved out of Murano section

Breezy  :)

Ok, your topic's in Glass now and I've altered the title so hopefully, Frank will see it.  I hope that's ok with you.
