Large Murano Apple W/Label
« on: July 17, 2010, 11:46:58 PM »
I've had a few sets of these before, however this one is much larger than normal which usually run 3" in diameter while this one has a 5" diameter & the core color is a bit strange almost like solid Czech Malachite with gold running through it. Whats left of an old paper label simply say Genuine Murano Glass & the word IMPORT in caps running through the blue bar on the label. Picked it up because the core color is one I haven't seen before. About twice the weight of any I've had. Any chance of a particular attribution due to the oddball color? Thanks, Ken

It looks like a Decora Import label. From the scraps of information I've gathered, Decora was in NY and handled AVeM imports. I don't know if they handled imports from any other Murano companies. Your apple is most likely AVeM if it is a Decora label.
