Uranium Glass Bird Vase
« on: September 23, 2012, 01:47:51 PM »
Picked this up today. Uranium Glass Bird Vase. It is 31cm in height, polished base but no sig/mark. Would appreciate a guess at which bird it is as well as maker if anyone knows.

Does anyone think this is Murano. I am clutching at straws here as I see some pieces that are Uranium and the same colour (the photo's dont show true colour) with a name that I wont suggest lol. Also the only Bird Vase Uranium that I can find.  The piece joining the bird vase to the base seems not too tidy. The Base is solid. Just thinking out loud. Any clues ??

I would say it's Murano (that crested swan thing and the colours are very typical) but doubt you'll find a maker

I have seen the same bird with a different base on line. It had a broken head and base, the base was a gathered 'bun' style. That sold for just under 50. I will keep looking. They were unsure of maker too. Thanks
