An Interesting paperweight - Bohemian or What?
« on: October 17, 2005, 05:39:33 PM »
My detective work led me to think this recent purchase was Bohemian close pack millefiori, but then i spotted what looks like a thistle cane at the edge (blue cane) Can anyone please clear up my confusion? And I thought this was getting easier!! :?
Ronnie :P

Absolutely Murano, from the return to major decorative glassmaking after WWII. Year made can't be confirmed, but definitely 1950s or 1960s.
