Pair of Fish
« on: January 27, 2006, 09:57:08 PM »
Hi Everyone!

Just wanted to show my ebay impulse buy. They were very inexpensive and I really liked them. One has a label but I can't read all of it. I used a magnifying glass and all I could make out was "Made Italy" in the center of the label. I think if I had a better magnifying glass I'd be able to make out more.  I know their "tourist" Murano but I still think their quite a nice pair. They stand 5 1/2" tall, controlled bubbles and have ground and polished bottoms. The color looks like a creamy aqua with gold dust and the eyes are indented not applied. Idea's of the maker?

Can you show us the label?  
Pieces like this were made by many makers, like Toso and Barbini.
I think the label could take us into the right direction.

Hi Javier,

Here's the label, but as you can see you can't see anything on it expect that it's round an silver, hopefully that will help. I read the "Made Italy" with the magnifying glass because it's raised and if you hold it on an angle you can read the raised letters.
