Glass & brass Swan decanter ID & repair advice
« on: August 03, 2012, 06:25:45 AM »
Hello everybody!
This is a very nice large decanter in shape of a swan with brass  head.
It is made of a clear over amber color glass and it is marked on the stopper "AUSTRIA" It is 12' high x 8'' wide
I don't know why but there is something that makes me think it is Murano and just the brass mount is Austrian.
This is because I think I have seen something very similar somewhere long time ago described as Murano but I can't recall any details.  Either way it is a very nice piece and I will be happy to find more about it.
There is a  1 inch long broken piece off one of the handles- I will appreciate every opinion if this could be repaired or if it is worth-ed in such case.
Thanks in advance!

I am waiting for a delivery of Windscreen repair resin. It needs a UV light to set but dries with the same qualities as glass. I will let you know if it works, I have a couple of test pieces to try..
