Can anyone tell me if this piece is actually Murano? If not what is it? It is completely white on the bottom.
So many things to collect and only so much money...

Well, it looks like Murano - but sort of different!   :shock:

I like it!  There are bits that look like leopard skin in it!  :D

It is circa 1970s "generic" Murano glass, maker unknown.

Zwiesel Farbglaswerke from Germany did something scarily similar in the sixties/ seventies and it is difficult to know which one is which. I agree that this one is Murano.
