Jenny:
Love the forum and this is my first post.  

Living in Australia, we don't get to see many interesting or old weights, so admiring all of your lovely pieces is very rewarding.

I know it's nothing special but it is bright and colourful and appeals to me.  It is listing in Australia so I am watching it.  Does anyone have any ideas about it?

My guess is Murano but that seems to cover just about everything that can't be labelled with a more exotic name.

Thanks

Leni:
This looks like one of the ones I call 'Murano-Chinese'  :twisted:  :wink:

But as you say, it's bright and colourful, so hey!  If you like it, go for it!   :D  Buy it for joy, not for profit!   :D  :wink:

Jenny:
Thanks for the replies.

I always buy what appeals to me and have some good and some not so good items.

What is "Murano-Chinese" ?  Do you mean Chinese copies or is it something more legitimate?

Ooops!  Left-overs from another thread!   :roll:  There has been some discussion here about weights made in China bearing 'Made in Murano' labels.  I'm not suggesting this is one of them, but where there is some doubt I tend to think of them as 'Murano-Chinese'.  

Personally, I don't mind Chinese weights, as long as they aren't being passed off as Muranese.  And I don't believe in aportioning the blame for such fraudulent 'passing-off' all to one side or the other!  

Sorry for the minor diversion into trading practices / politics :oops:

They are labelled just Murano, no "Made in"
