Help with Murano Ashtray
« on: January 21, 2006, 09:16:12 PM »
Hi,

I would like to find out the approximate value of a Murano ashtray I have.  It still has the label attached which has "Hand Painted, Murano, Venezia" on it.  The ashtray is approximatly 5" wide and is clear glass with multicolored (blue, green, turquoise, yellow, red , fuschia) accents. There is wording in the bottom that appears to say "Italy 25".  I do not know anything about glass so any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

I don't know the value but this site does have similar things on it.

I'm not sure if these pieces are brand new or not.
