Help...Italian or Scandinavian glass?
« on: December 30, 2005, 01:52:07 PM »
Good morning.

Does anyone know who made this ashtray? Do you think it's Italian or Scandinavian? It's kind of flat, with the opening being edged in red glass.

Seen a few of these described as Murano.  Anyone got a definite ID?  :?

Sneaky feeling I've also seen similar recently...
Maybe Murano ....but I have doubts ....poss more recent production ???
Chalet is another poss especially as you are in Canada

Chalet could be a possibility but it doesn't look like any piece of Chalet glass I've ever seen.

We have a large Italian community in my city so there's a lot of Murano glass around.

The dish has wear to the bottom which makes me believe it isn't recent.
