Hi Kev

Smaller pics attached although the originals were well within the guidelines for posting pics 125k each with a max of 4

If the limitation is the width in pixels maybe the posting size guideline needs amending?

On my screen , my pictures appear the same size as those posted by Deb in the initial post.

Best regards

Thanks Derek. It is not the Kb size that gives occasional problems but the fact that a 1200 pixel width forces a scroll bar for some people and can also affect the Board's system.

Anita, is the photo you mentioned above one you can post here?
Lily :) 

Lily, the picture is not mine, so I can't post it here. I may have spoken a bit too soon. I checked my picture and the canes are different, though the form is the same. It may be that other Murano furnaces made similar pws. I do think that this is FT because it looks much the same, but I need to leave the door open for some other possibilities.

These pws make me think of long-stemmed bouquets. Derek's pw with the latticino wreath reminds me of a large pedestal pw I had. Alan has this pw on his site under Fratelli Toso. I believe it was a tentative probably-type attribution. These pws are particularly lovely.
