I dont remember exactly what it went for now being 2 years ago (to many days and to many pieces of glass sold in between im afraid).
Johnphilip is a pretty good source for glass (one of the big brains  ;D) I will drop him an email and draw his attention to this thread and he can give you more details.

Tweaked the topic a little, and moving this to Murano for greater exposure. :)

I'm with Ivo in saying generic Murano (although I prefer the term non attributable Murano).  It's not that it's an inferior piece; it's more that it would be impossible from this photo to say Barbini and even difficult if you were holding it. A few companies made pieces like this. As I said, it's not to denigrate the piece, which I quite like personally. It's just I'd hate to be quoted as saying it's Barbini by someone selling it, which I think is probably a common reaction.

Thanks for the response.  Your absolutely right by saying that, it is difficult to positively identifying this piece.  Its hard to sell without a positive i.d.  Does anyone else have any ideas???   :)
