Is this boat shaped dish Murano?
« on: February 21, 2006, 02:24:00 AM »
I hope this isn't another Mexican one.  :lol:

It measures approx 10 inches across. It's cased with a band of blue above the light blue casing (see first picture). I've see them described as Murano so I thought i'd better check just in case.

Hi TC, I suspect more Scandinavian than Murano, based on general shape and the overall colouration.

Thanks Chuggy, It's probably new as well. I'll look into it.

It's very dangerous too. I nearly broke something expensive when I accidently spun it around.  :)
