Murano? paperweight bottle ID help needed
« on: November 11, 2011, 07:08:02 PM »
I recently acquired this paperweight bottle.  My thinking is that it is Murano.  The base of the bottle is flat and polished.  No identifying marks. The body is a translucent opalescent blue. The flower canes remind me of Murano I have seen but can't remember when.  Stands 11 1/4" tall.  Base is 3 9/16" diameter. Looking for ID confirmation and possible age.

The bottle part colour reminds me of some Salviati pieces I've seen but maybe some one else can help ;D
