Sounds good to me, John. Then that is what it is. I didn't know how it was done.

I would guess (emphasis on guess) that polveri might be used to describe a few slightly different techniques or uses of fine (pulverised) glass, perhaps the relevance being a small grain size.

Thanks very much for changing the title. It's great to see all these lovely works of art ! Love your Salviati jug John ! Is the spelling of ' Polveri' correct or is it' Pulveri ' it would be good to see more examples of this technique if possible...please ?   :D

Through a thread in the Glass Reference Websites forum, Anne gave us a link to a site with a Glossary of terms for Murano glass. But under "P", there is no "Polveri / Pulveri" or anything like it. But plenty of websites (including of course eBay) offer images and sales of both "polveri" and "pulveri" items.  ;D

It's not in my illustrated dictionary of glass either (Harold Newman , Thames & Hudson , 1977 ) but here is a general translation , so it could cover many different possibilities I guess ....
