Glass cat???
« on: November 04, 2012, 12:35:58 PM »
Hi everyone.

Can someone please help me with this glass cat.

It has been very well made but has no marking to tell me who made it!

Any info would be great.

Kind regards 

Nathan

Welcome to the board. Your pictures are way too small and don't blow up, so we can't really see anything. Resize a high-res picture so the the longest dimension is about 700 pixels. You don't need to make a thumbnail, as the board does that.

Much better. I suspect your cat is modern Chinese or something similar though

Hello Nathan, I agree with Christine,  They are often described as Murano or Murano Style,  but I believe they are Chinese and certainly have no real age to them.  I would class them as a fun item rather than a collectors piece. There is a lot of work in them and some are really well made with a lot of humorous detail.
