No-one likes general adverts, and ours hadn't been updated for ages, so we're having a clear-out and a change round to make the new ones useful to you. These new adverts bring in a small amount to help pay for the board and keep it free for you to use, so please do use them whenever you can, Let our links help you find great books on glass or a new piece for your collection. Thank you for supporting the Board.

Having the right books is a great aid in identifying glass.

I've seen this type of tiny minis questioned here before (was it you Ruth?) but do not think I have seen an answer. Apparently Muranese lampwork - Does anybody know anything more?

Hi again Ivo,
I've seen some with the same shape as yours on Venetian glass books, attributed to Salviati. Those were filigrana pieces, and others all in aventurine. Yours look very similar and could be early pieces too.
