Two Murano pieces (or Scandinavian?)
« on: January 24, 2006, 08:08:29 PM »
The first is a cobalt blue dish with a lovely rounded polished rim - 10x6x2".
Flat polished base with wear.

The second, a similar colour triangular dish.  Quite old, and with a flat polished base with lots of wear.

I've seen these two described as being Murano and Scandinavian(?) in the past :roll:

And I've decided to include this weird and wonderful looking thing, with its Mini-me version...  presumably ashtrays - crazy 60s look.

Any ideas please?

I'm probably way off here Anne, but none of them look Murano to me and I would opt for Scandi for them all, though the 2 blue pieces could equally be northern European.

The shapes look more Scandi don't they, but I wanted to be sure.   The bowl is definitely not IKEA :P   I think several companies may have produced this style of bowl,  so I'll do a search of Scandi & N.European to see what turns up.  
Goodness knows what the crazy pair are.  The designer must have been having a bit of a joke :lol:
Many thanks Paul 8)

I'll bet the 2 wierd ones look great with a night light in them though.
