Hi Tom   :)

Did your customer buy this item on Murano, or is there a sticker on the piece?

customer did not buy it on Murano, but there is a partial sticker on the base that indicates it was from Murano. Barbini, Seguso, Pignoretto, others? not that old as the top is glued to the base. I think they've only been using the glues for approx. 20 years.
