Identify Cased Glass Goblets
« on: August 03, 2012, 02:18:14 AM »
Hi, I am looking to identify these 8 orange cased glass goblets that I had purchased several years ago at an estate auction.  I am not sure but I think they may be Carlo Moretti, bicolore satinato.  I would appreciate hearing from anyone who knows for sure.  Thanks so much!

Welcome to the board. Your photos need to be much larger. Those are only thumbnails that don't blow up. Resize your hi-res pics so that the longest dimension is 700 pixels and you should be OK

Not saying anything definite here but the milk glass lining is weak and uneven which points at Chinese manufacture - not at Moretti which should be strong and defined at all times. It is also not satinato. All in all I think your chances are slim - sorry.
