Murano? Id please
« on: October 22, 2009, 07:15:59 PM »
Hi all,

Having now confirmed this is not Whitefriars and having spotted 2 of these bowls listed under WF online, would anyone be able to confirm whether it is indeed Murano? As I have thought from when it was bought.

TIA Sharron

The color is one often used for Murano glass. The look of the glass and the smoothness of the base look very much like Murano glass. The form is a common one used. I am fairly confident that it is Murano. This is one of my favorite shades of amber.

Thankyou so much Anita,

I really like this colour too- it is so rich, and the organic shape very appealing.

Thanks Sharron
