I vote for Murano!
Any opinions?

Nick77:
Murano for me too, a very nice murano but not St Louis.

RAINBOWGIRL:
Murano all the way.

Hi

The seller keeps re-listing this weight. I have told him twice (in my best French) that it is a (very nice) Murano piece.  I have offered to get a second opinion from the Director of the Saint-Louis Museum, Bertrand Feuga, whom I know well.  No response.

I don't think the seller is interested in an accurate attribution - but then, there are plenty of people out there who are not!

The seller wrote me:
"You know absolutely nothing.
Your little small collectors club did not afford the sulfide St Louis where your denigration of the sulfide.
First buy books from St Louis, learn to identify the crystal by radiation and after you and your little club of amateur collectors come and see me to give you some lessons on Baccarat crystal, St. Louis, Clichy, Sèvres and Murano.
AMATEUR SUNDAY."
