Murano???
« on: January 15, 2006, 12:50:24 AM »
This is a small... vase? Not sure what it is becasue it's only3" tall and the opening is 2" across. It's cased in white on the inside and crystal on the outside. It has a smooth polished bottom. Any ideas?

Hi

What a lovely little vase

I am getting similar controlled bubble designs from my books by 'Conterie & Cristallerie' & 'Barovier & Toso' - thing is none are cased to inside with white like this.

I know that many Murano firms liked this white inner lining and it does look so Italian with the colour and the bubbles - just intuition, can't give you a name but I think it's Murano and a good manufacturer c 1950s

Hi Adam,

I don't know much about Murano, so it's nice to get your opinion. Thank You!

Hi CathyG!
This type of glass was usually done by Fratelli Toso. I've had a few cigarrete sets in the same style before with his labels.
