Probably Murano is as good as you are going to get. Any time in the last 60 years.

Hi Christine,  I have seen similar on various websites but not all are Murano and it is very difficult to stamp a label on it when your not sure. I will of course label it as Murano until anything else comes to light.  Thanks for your time and speedy response to this post.   :thup:

I said probably and this is a fairly standard Murano form and of decent quality if somewhat dodgy design.

I always find these *hard* to figure out now -- as I STILL consider myself a newbie even being a member for a few years.  See, I get confused - as you will see with my Pelican post...I thought that was Murano, but NOT - rather KM, and moved to Scandinavian Glass area here.

In that link, some others pixs of some beautiful birds - and I would have thought they were Murano.  Gee, Glass is still confusing but.......Still learning -- all the time -- and Thank God for this Forum !!
