Can anyone tell me anything about this Murano
« on: October 03, 2010, 05:07:43 PM »
Hi it has a Murano sticker so I can assume its by then it translates to something like " made by the technical skills of Murano Italy ". Can I preseume its a scent bottle without its stopper. Is the finish unusual ?. Anyone know the age please as well ?

From what I've read, this label means that glass is made using the techniques of the masters in Murano, but not that it is made in Murano itself. This is a tricky label.

Does the last line of the label say "made in ...."? If so, what is the last word?

Agreed. There are several tricky labels like this around, "Arte Murano, "Ars Murano", "Lavorazione Murano" etc
Murano never has molded extrusions on the base.
Its a pretty piece. It wouldn't surprise me if the label said "made in Italy" but I can tell you that Terry had one with the same gold "marbled" streaks, only in blue, labeled just "India". I have since seen several on Ebay with silver leaf decor and threading labeled India and somewhere I have a molded dish in a very similar shade and varigated colour to yours with gold "clouds" which I suspect is from the same factory as these others.

The label on these usually says "Made in Italy." I can't see the finish well enough on this one to tell much. I have a hard time telling what makes the spots in the glass. It does look like gold foil was applied to the surface and then oxidized. The shape of the mold, however, is not something seen commonly in Murano.

I bought a piece of glass from TK Max with this label on last year.
