Can you identify this recent find.
« on: November 26, 2012, 08:08:37 PM »
Dear All,  slightly different this one.

parts of me wants to say it's Murano then the rough pontil distracts me. Might be a reject as one of the canes is broken in two.

Can anyone satisfy my curiosity?   :)

Kind Regards


Andrew

Unfortunately all of your images are out of focus.

For crisp photos at a close distance, set the camera to its "macro" setting (usually indicated by a small flower icon). Otherwise it will try to focus at its "minimum distance" or it will use the background as its best focus control.

Also, if you are not already doing so, try to support the camera to minimise shake.
