You really do deserve a treat after being put through the mangle as you recently have.  :smg:
Nice one! :thup:

I love simple design that can look different and this does that. Gorgeous thing Kane.
Clean and Crisp a Murano twist.
Archimede tops my list.

What a stunning vase!

Sorry to hijack this thread, but perhaps some of you Murano / Poli experts can help me with a vase I have posted in the ID section some time ago, but without much success...
It has the same greenish-grey hue like Kane's new "toy" :), and is a quite substantial piece as well (I would guess a weight of almost 10kg):
http://www.glassmessages.com/index.php/topic,39313.msg218417.html

Would 50ies/60ies Murano be the right direction for further research?

BTW, I was in Switzerland last week, and saw the very same vase as mine (only in a different colour -- dark green) in a high end antique shop specialized in midcentury design, sitting between several Poli pieces. Unfortunately the shop was closed, so I couldn't ask for further informations...

Thank you very much!
Michael
