Different companies made glass for Camer. One Murano company that made a lot of Camer glass was Barbini. I believe that one of the Seguso companies may have also made some Camer glass, though I'm not sure of this. If you take pictures of your glass and post the pictures, someone may be able to help you more.

Just a note to agree with Anita that photographs would be needed to make a positive id, and to further explain that Camer Glass was an import company based in New York that brought in Murano glass. As well as glass by Barbini, they also imported at least some lighting fixtures by Venini. These are both well known Murano companies.

also, the pink vase has gold flecks in it and kind of does a fade out from one side of the vase to the other, from pink with gold flecks to a deep red. thanks for any imput!

Hi Rebecca,

These pics are too small to be seen clearly - you've either posted thumbnails, or you've made the pictures too small. If you use Irfanview or Paint to resize your photos, make the longest side about 700 pixels and then the file size should be small enough to upload here. See Anne's Techie Tip on posting pictures for more.

If that doesn't work, try 600 pixels. If after all that you're still having trouble, let me know.

Even at the size they are, they look like very nice pieces!


Mod: I've edited my second sentence above because it was completely garbled.

Yes, these definitely have to be seen better. The finish on the basket and the lines of the bowl are important.
