They have some lovely items on Molta Bella, but on a couple of occasions I have actually corrected them..  They had some little Chinese birds they described as Murano millefiori,  but they were the pretty little 'Feather effect' birds that I have many of.  In fairness, they corrected it immediately, and ultimately took the listing off.

I looked through his listings and found two nice opaline Galliano Ferro birds listed as Barovier. I guess we'll have to send him a link to the zoo. I don't feel bad about him because I've always found him okay to work with.

I have bought glass from Molta Bella in the past and can say that he is a nice guy to deal with.  I am sure his misattributions are a mistake.  He sold me two pieces as Carlo Moretti and over the last few months I have had my doubts about them being Carlo Moretti.  The look of them appears to be Moretti but I haven't found anything like them with labels on it to confirm his attribution.  Perhaps I will post the items and let you be the judge once I get my new camera.
