Murano? Signed marked art glass vase, Please help
« on: April 05, 2006, 03:25:05 AM »
Hello, I am new to this site and was wondering if anyone could help me identify my vase. I don't even know if it is murano, but I'm sure one of you would be able to tell. It is engraved on the bottom with either a signiature or numbers, not sure. It measures approx. 8" tall. Here are the pics:

 Thanks for any and all help!

Hi Jamey & Welcome

Altho broadly in the Murano style the colors are not so typical and the rough ponttil scar on the base would suggest studio production - not Murano.

The shape looks a bit wonky - is it ?

The "signature" looks to me like an alpha numeric A6WINS7 written with a continental 7 which would suggest a stock number used for a computer system.

So continental Europe small studio piece is my guess. Sorry can't be more specific.

So, on most Murano pieces is the pointil ground? Sorry don't want to sound dumb, but this isn't what I usually buy or sell so I am not knowledgable in this area. But I would like to be. -Jamey

No Jamey
Most modern Murano have flat, ground and mirror polished bases with no pontil mark showing at all.
