Good quality Murano fish??
« on: January 11, 2010, 07:26:08 PM »
Hi folks,

I'd like your thoughts on this Murano glass fish sculpture...Something in the style of the fish reminds me of Gino Cenedese or am I way off?

thank you in advance!

Blair, I feel like the harbinger of bad news. I believe your fish is a JI Co piece. Shannon has one that is similar at http://gallery.blancoglass.com/v/Animals/fish1.jpg.html. The posture of the fish are different, but the pedestal and basal coloration of the dorsal fin are very similar.
