Perthshire - or Murano?
« on: August 17, 2008, 12:40:01 PM »

Surely this paperweight is Murano, not Perthshire?

The description in the 'Item Specifics' box is more accurate: Maker: Unsure, Country of Origin: Unsure

Seller probably hopes that someone will gamble on the chance that it might be a Perthshire.

Buyer will get a nice Seguso. But 40 pounds for it? I've gotten mine for a lot less
I collect Scottish and Italian paperweights and anything else that strikes my fancy.
