Arrrr, well, there's the rub.  Big things like this are harder to sell - they take up so much room!  The price they achieve generally is poor consequently.  It's hard to offer an estimate, but I should think anything between £10 - £38 on Ebay.  Depending on your luck.  <~only my opinion, for what it's worth.   :?

:D:? :D

Try asking on the Murano forum as well, Lucy. There was a company in Canada called Chalet that made these BIG organic things. Somebody with much more knowledge about Italian things than me would be able to tell you whether Murano is right or not.

Scubbed this posting.

It's only my vho when I say I think this is Italian.  I'm no expert.   Sorry if I've droned on...I shouldn't post on here when I'm thinking about other stuff!   :oops:

Mod: From the description it sounds like it could have almost been Polish. Now that the pics have gone I guess we'll never know.

No, thanks for your views Max, any brainstorming can  lead to an answer!
Any thoughts or opinions are taken onboard. I have looaads of other bits that I haven't a clue as to their origins, now that I have bitten the bullet and actually posted "all by my own-self!" (it wasn't as scary as I thought)
I will will put some more on,
Any opinions will be gratefully received
