Two cute birds - Made in China

<< < (2/5) > >>

Hi Adam, I can 100% guarantee they are Chinese. 

I have a large collection of them and some have their labels on....Oval, 'Made in China'. 

Pretty feathering effects but neverthless Chinese. 

I have a posting here on the board somewhere discussing them, I will see if I can find the link.

In the meantime here are some of my collection with an IOW intruder!!

Thanks Rosie - Yours look lovely in a group



It is indeed unfortunate that the Chinese knowingly copy brand on the planet that has been a success.  Unfortunatley for them, nothing matches the quality of authentic Murano Glass regardless of how hard they try.  You cannot mistake the skill of a master glass blower who has earnt the title of Maestro over at least 15 years minimum.  I am contstantly bombarded by the Chinese trying to get our business to sell Chinese knock-offs and I won't touch them with a barge bowl.  If collectors wish to go this way, that is of course their choice.



The important thing to remember about glass is that no matter what you call it, it IS exactly what it is.
A good piece of glass is always good, a bad piece always bad.
When you hold a bit of glass - that bit IS it's own unique self.
And if you like it, that is all that matters.
There is good Chinese glass, there is bad Murano.

Hi Sue

I totally agree.  What gives people pleasure is their own choice so purchase, relax and enjoy
