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"

Can anyone tell me if this piece is actually Murano? If not what is it? It is completely white on the bottom.

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.
