Darn Sure this is MURANO.....More Pink ;)
« on: March 23, 2012, 08:44:47 AM »
Hi :waving:

Bought this Pink Glass vase with bubbles, and gold flecks in it.  Pretty sure it is Murano -- and I am going to take a guess at ?? Barbini maybe  ???   That was my first thought, anyways.  It is about 9 inches tall.

Any ideas, or confirmed ID on this item?   

Seems like I am into Pink here after getting those Pink Murano Lamps....LOL.....even if these have *Gold* Flecks while my Lamps have *Silver* Flakes.  Doesn't matter to me as long as Murano  ;)

TIA

Gotta keep track of my little scraps of paper with measurements......LOL.  I do have a notebook here, but forget to add the info to it.  Plus I am like 4 months behind on some of the things I have bought here to post. 

Too many collectibles, and too little time.....LOL.

 ;D

Yes, 9 inches tall and about 5 inches wide at the widest point

Hi there:  Maybe this can go over to the Murano board ??

I am guessing Barbini for the following reasons, IMHO:  Sample 1, and Sample 2.  So anyone confirm this.

Thanks

Has a very Italian feel Rose but I can not help with the maker.

Good photos BTW.

Thanks John   :)

Me too -- and those links seem to match (IMHO) pretty good.  In my mind it is Barbini.

Thanks for liking my photos, as they say "A picture is worth a 1000 words...."    LOL  ;D

Found this one, looks the same -- and uses a book to reference as Barbini.....so maybe pop it over to Murano Board.

See *HERE
