1970's Murano?
« on: March 29, 2006, 10:54:02 AM »
Hi.

I'm going to do some selling today.  Just checking these are 1970's Murano - it's really the little one I'm checking, it's much better made than the larger one - as you can see.   :wink:

These are both Chinese. They should both have flat ground opaque bases to them (which is the usual giveaway).

Oops!  Just checked in my only pw book, and the larger one is Chinese...you're quite right.   I've had them for ages, I thought perhaps the smaller one was Murano, but happy to be corrected.  Cheers and thanks.  :D
