it  tend to agree with Alexander,
Cenedese made a similar design but I don't think yours are the same.

I searched for some information online, but couldn't find anything useful. My first inclination was that the fish were FM Konstglas. The line of the glass of the head and the richness of the glass made me think of them. I've learned that often things that look like they might be Cenedese are FMK. There is much similarity in some of the work of the two companies.

Are we talking about technique/design? ... Or are we talking about collectability???

These fish were made by master glassblowers from Murano, trained in the Murano technique.


My reply is as follows:

yes, this is Murano
made by Marcolin / FM Ronneby, Sweden.

The fish, B-15, were made in the 1960's, in different sizes: 30, 25, 20 and 13 cm
early 1970's they were available only in 22 cm

I often see their animals and fish misidentified as Cenedese. Their fish pop up frequently on eBay with an Antonio Da Ros attribution. Ingela helped me with a muskox that was FM Ronneby. I thought maybe it was a good quality Cenedese. I was not surprised when I learned what it was, because the base was more highly polished than is typical for Cenedese.

One thing I find difficult is the following the history of the Marcolin companies -- mergers and acquisitions. From what Ingela wrote, these fish are FM Ronneby, instead of FM Konstglas Ronneby. I need to learn the history better. For now I'm pleased to have gotten to the point of identifying some of the glass made by the Marcolin companies.

Sorry about the confusion, we are a bit lazy here, we seldom say FM Konstglas Ronneby ...... It's easier to say it's FM, or FM Ronneby, or Marcolin ... instead of FM Konstglas Ronneby. A lot of people in Sweden just say that it's Ronneby, and seldom use Marcolin. So I should have said that the fish are FM Konstglas Ronneby.

By the way, your FMK was new to me! ;D

And I found the B-15 fish on our Swedish forum, in the FM thread:
