Is this Murano glass?

(1/3) > >>

insaneprofessor:
I've just collected lots of glass stuff I liked over  the years, I don't really know very much about it

I'm wondering if this piece (an ashtray?) is Murano and if so from which decade

also, while it has no chips or cracks, it has numerous small scratches on it and has obviously been well used.  Does this mean I shouldn't really bother auctioning it?

I've got friends who'd like it as a present and if it's not really worth anything I'll give it away

thanks again

Louise :)



Ivo:
It looks like Murano, doesn' t it - but I think this is actually Bohemian, made at Chrbska and sold under the Bohemia label some time during eighties. A very similar vessel in clear, green and brown designed by L. Palecek in '76 was produced at Skrdlovice - I think designs wandered around the various factories.

insaneprofessor:
Thank Ivo

Not what I wanted to hear but I appreciate your help

one last picture, just in case the rubbish pictures earlier were misleading (just  me being in denial :roll:  :D  )

I thought so
Is it not so?
I really honestly know very little about glass, I've just picked up things I liked here and there and I need to buy a film camera so I'm selling years of accumulated stuff
I thought that Murano was 'better' than Bohemian  
from your post I suppose that this isn't the case
