Murano Apple?
« on: February 21, 2010, 11:58:51 AM »
Looks like Murano to me, sharp pontil, textured stem and leaf with gold inclusions.

Any ideas?

Tigerchips, I think you're right that it is Murano. I've seen many perfume bottles and other things with this type of filigrana. It might be tough to track down without a label. I have the feeling that most of these types pieces were made in the last 20-30 years, but could be wrong. I've seen labels on some of the bottles, but don't remember who they were. A photographic memory would be wonderful, so I could remember all these things I see online.

Dunno why .... cos its late Sunday night and I still have 15 things to pack from madly E-Baying .... but it brings to mind my so far unidentified swirly bottles.  Maybe its the swirly bits and the rough cut pontil.

Hi Rose, yes, looks like it a little.
