Are these 3 large freeblown glass vases Murano?
« on: March 17, 2006, 01:50:51 PM »
HiYa....need your help again?! I have listed 3 large freeblown art glass vases on e-bay.....could anyone positively identify as have had a question from a potential bidder asking if I knew the maker...I checked the internet for similar items prior to listing and could not find any similar.....these are large .... largest is nearly 2 foot high!....only info I received was that they were bought in the early 1970's....not sure if they were bought as new or secondhand or all from the same place....Cheers

ebay item numbers:
7399481943 .... 7399474129 .... 7399488982

Probably a studio artist, 1970's or later.

Certainly not Murano the size and style argues either Eastern European or Chinese.

I definitely agree with Chuggy.  But they are still lovely big pieces of glass.   :)

I'd have said English, but almost any country would do :!:
