Covering all the bases
« on: March 25, 2011, 07:30:53 AM »

The seller of this closepack paperweight has certainly tried to cover the main antique French makers in his description.  But is it not mid 20th C Murano?

  Mid twentieth century Murano seems good to me. The white petaled,yellow middle flowers I have seen before in two of my previous weights and I have classed them as Murano especially with the cogy canes all around although this weight is above the normal with the faceting. Regards Roger H.
