Could this mottled vase be Murano?
« on: February 28, 2013, 01:50:40 PM »
A result of a donation of glassware to our charity (http://www.furnitureplus.org.uk/) I am busy trying to find out about the items I am unsure of before listing them for sale on Ebay.

This little vase is one of them.  It stands approx. 4 in/10 cm tall, has a smoothed concave pontil area, and the design is cased inside clear glass.  Inside the design are a few areas of gold-effect sparkle.

I would be grateful for any help.

No idea who made them but they were sold by Yankee Candles (or similar) and filled with potpourri or candles or suchlike.

Decorative but no particular value I guess.

Thanks, John.  What a pity.  It's beautiful quality glass too.  :'(
