It's a nice large piece and a good buy on any day - but it is Chinese....

i was hoping it was a murano as i have seen a smaller version descibed as "op art by vanutti" (32cm in height i think) with the same 'eye' pattern on it?
never mind, maybe next time!!! must be worth £3 at least!!!  ;D

Anyone can make up an Italian sounding name. Beware ebay attributions. When you Google Vanutti, it's the same ebay seller virtually every time that comes up.
