Help with heavy teardrop style vase
« on: August 29, 2012, 01:16:33 PM »
Hi all,
     Newbie to the glass message board,  found this cool vase this week, I'm thinking that it is Murano, but I leave it to you experts to confirm this.  Maker or any other info is also appreciated.  Thanks

I'd guess from the colours and the rather loose control over the colour effects that this one originated in China.

Aye, definitely Chinese - there's an identical one in the local branch of TK Maxx for 12.99.

12.99 = $20.60 so at $4 you got a bargain!
