Murano I think.
« on: May 25, 2012, 11:27:10 AM »
Picked up this one today which I think is Murano, interesting granulated copper layer under the canes. Remains of a lable but nothing legible there. Glass has quite a few swirls so possibly an older weight? 70mm in diameter.

Thanks
Nick

Hi Nick

It is a fairly common design of Murano by Fratelli Toso, from the second half of the 20th C.  See my 'Murano project' on my website for similar examples.
