Murano or Bohemian. ID = Italy - "Goebel Import", maker unknown
« on: January 07, 2013, 01:42:25 PM »
[Mod: Feb 2015 - later thread now merged with this one. Both items have same cane structures. Maker is currently unknown.]

Another I just cannot find a match for Murano or Bohemian and how old?

Thanks in advance
Nick

Thanks but I've only heard of Goebel as a German glass company, do you have any links to the Italian one, is it part of the same company?

Had Murano 'type' weights before with a Gold and black circular label reading House of Goebel Italy before maybe an Import/Export label?

Also Crystal and pottery items on eBay but with West Germany on the label, most appear to be coming from the States?

That's what I thought too! I haven't seen any like this before, and haven't had luck tracking any down. I was hoping someone would recognize the style. Thanks for looking!

My first guess would be John Deacons?

I believe that this is Murano...I've seen similar canes in more traditional paperweight forms. This piece is exceptionally large and seem well executed.

It's the same maker as this one I listed in a previous thread   

[Mod: link to original thread removed. The two threads are now merged.]

reply was that it was Goebel, Italy. Also was really high quality compared to the average Murano weight.
