VILCA Italy Swan
« on: September 01, 2012, 01:06:00 PM »
Clear glass swan marked VILCA to base - did a quick google and found out it's Italian, much more I don't know - but I see board members have similar pieces.

Thanks Adam

I have never heard of that name....new one for me.  So were these made in Murano......or just in Italy?   What year are they from?

Ever wonder IF there will be a whole new discovery of a Glass company (made by one of us) -- that so little is ever know about them.  Like we made some great Discovery?

Would be kinda neat!!
