The colors and form of the piece are too generic to place a name on the house that produced it..... Many of the Murano pieces such as this are simply that way....

It is a pretty piece of glass, but will probably remain anonymous.

There is a lot of Murano glass that can't be attributed, Keith. The island had small furnaces that most of the people in the USA have never heard of. Someone who recently visited Murano told me that it was still that way. The copying of styles as people moved among companies or borrowed popular designs from other companies made attribution even more difficult. I've had so much difficulty trying to attribute the animals. I would stand in awe of anyone trying to attribute the ashtrays. Of course, one can take the eBay approach and call anything that is unattributable to Seguso... just don't try to pin them down on which Seguso it was.  :D

The trouble is that so many of the things we collect were not sold as collectables: they were just ornaments or things to use and they probably had a label at point of sale. You can rest assured that all the modern "collectables" that fill the pages of magazines like Collect it (no offence to the magazine, the manufacturers or the collectors) are well labelled. Even many modern glass workers don't sign or mark many of their more ordinary ranges (unless you ask) because they just making things to enjoy, not things to collect
