Murano Art glass vase?
« on: February 15, 2009, 04:44:35 PM »
Good morning from raining Northern California. Any ideas on this glass Vase? Is it Murano and if so any thoughts on who made it? Thank you for your time.

No one has answered yet, so I thought I would put in a word on your vase. I am not very good at sommerso vases because they can all look so similar to me. There is one thing that makes me doubt your vase is Murano -- the base is polished to a frosted finish. Murano glass is usually polished smooth if polished at all -- particularly their sommerso vases. There may be a lot of exceptions, though, so I can't say for certain that your vase is not Murano. The base reminds me of some that I have seen from Poland, China, and North America.

TX, thank you so much for the feedback, some times another eye is just what you need. I see what you mean about the bottom.. I had looked at bottom and seen a ground smooth finish but now I see the frosted look you talked about. The sticker that’s left behind was a large sticker and a piece of foil was left so ,I don’t think china, and the glass is way better then there new china glass, But Poland, That could be the answer I'm looking for, THanks again
