Please help ID this Murano Glass - Tutti Frutti?
« on: February 12, 2012, 11:18:36 PM »
Hello all.  I am new to this forum and need some help.  Can anyone identify the pictured Murano glass?  Is it considered "Tutti Frutti"?  Age?  Is this considered a dish, bowl tray etc.?  It has copper flaking through out and very colorfull.  The label reads Genuine Murano Glass on the top with Ferro Italarts in the middle and made in Italy on the bottom.  Any help is greatly appreciated.  Thank You.

Hi and welcome to the forum,

These are often called tutti frutti, although I don't think that is a Murano name.  This piece looks like a very nice version from the 50's or 60's. There's an earlier on thread on Ferrro Italart which might help you
