No-one likes general adverts, and ours hadn't been updated for ages, so we're having a clear-out and a change round to make the new ones useful to you. These new adverts bring in a small amount to help pay for the board and keep it free for you to use, so please do use them whenever you can, Let our links help you find great books on glass or a new piece for your collection. Thank you for supporting the Board.

Having the right books is a great aid in identifying glass.
To help you find the most useful books we have put together "book-seek.com"

I have told the seller of this paperweight that it is 20th Century Murano, but nothing has changed as yet.

Definitely low quality, late-20th century millefiori. One of the minor companies does this type millefiori, but I can't recall who it is right now. The canes are so thin that they look almost like decals stuck on the glass. They will probably be worth a lot of money in a century, though. :spls:
