Victorian - not!
« on: February 16, 2009, 04:26:30 PM »
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:
