ID help required for this white/brown striped vase - Murano?
« on: September 11, 2012, 11:33:33 AM »
I am a volunteer Ebay seller for a charity : http://www.furnitureplus.org.uk/

I need some help with the identification of this vase.  I like to speak with a certain amount of authority about what I am selling.

It stands approx. 10 in/26 cm tall.

The base is very slightly concave, and has the pontil mark smoothed rather than polished.

Any help would be very gratefully received.
