Thanks TxSilver.............I agree. There was something special about the bowl and that's why I got it!
I won it off eBay of all things, and had to pay a "little more" to win the auction and acquire it. But, to me
it was worth it. I had never seen anything like it. At first it almost seems fake and I thought the
millefiori was a transfer. But when you take a close look, it is real cane going all the way through!
You can tell, one....by where the larger canes are located, they are evident on both sides. And,
second....the outside of the bowl is very smooth, but on the inside, you can feel where each millefiori
cane is raised just a bit.
That's why I joined this board to share and learn more about this love affair I have with Murano!
Thank you for your comment!
P.S. I graduated H.S. in Eagle Pass, Texas, so I am an old Longhorn myself and carry it with me forever.
Someday, I will tell you why I still abode up here in the Northern Wasteland! LOL!!
