I have just done a trip to the antique shops in the West of NSW Australia and picked up a few glass pieces. This one I discarded as Chinese then came back to have another look. The store owner said the consignment was from a reliable source and the base looks like it has some age. I was concerned about the moulded looking base lacking the pontil of Murano.
It was covered in dust and had been their a while so I argued to myself that I liked the colour and would live with it anyway.
Weight 1.45 k's (3.3 Ibs) Size 34cm (13 1/2") long, 14cm (5 1/2") wide, 14cm (5 1/2") high.
Any ideas anyone about this.
