There are two clams shown on Great Glass:

Scroll about two-thirds down: No's. 5943 & 5960, both featuring silver inclusions but neither are attributed.

Thanks David, Yep I see them.... neither are attributed as you say.
So does that mean unattributable ? or just that Philip & Ann don't know. They are immensely knowledgable but nobady can know about all types of glass and Murano has to be one of the hardest.

Ray, I always used to think of Nason when I saw this type of glass with so much adventurine,  ....especially when embedded in a dark color, which online seems to be generally attributed to Nason. But recently have noted a number of other makers in my books and online who have used this look...most recently in Pinas Fratelli Toso.

Javier any thoughts ?

Hello Peter,
Many apologies. Been out of it for a bit....  Im pretty sure we can rule out Barovier on this one. I do think the piece is Nason, but not an older piece. I'm sure Nason, like Cenedese, Venini and other companies, has re-issued some of their old designs along the way. It just has that "feel" to me. Hope that didnt confuse you more, lol.

Hi

Sorry to put my ore in here, but I have a clam form bowl just posted on 'Labels thread' - I can't see the original TinyPic so I am only assuming it was similar to mine - it has the label which might help?

http://hometown.aol.co.uk/blackcatgla/images/lido2.jpg label

I feel that this piece bought with the Clam & also a sea shape (Starfish) is by the same maker

The aventurine & tortoise combination both point at Nason.

Here is my humongous blue one, I always understood it to be Nason as well:

Both lovely bowls, I agree Nason looks right

For mine, yes G Hardy but I was hoping the 'Lido' above might give a clue as to which maker they were importing

Oh and Peter / Ivo - can I apologise for past indiscretions (I hope you understand what I mean, I mention it briefly and it will never be mentioned again, if you want to email me just ask)

Wow

what a wonderful board this is!

I don't think I've ever learned so much in so little time before LOL

Thank you all so much, I have revised the listing to say that it can probably be attributed to Nason
