Murano green frosted striped vase?
« on: April 28, 2006, 10:00:33 PM »
Hi, I bought this vase which I think is Murano.

The 8 white stripes can be felt clearly above the glass but are also sunk into glass as well. It has a broken pontil as you can see. The foot has been applied seperately and the vase measures approx 12.50 inches high.

Any ideas of maker, age, etc?

Thanks.  :)

I love the way the vase turns green near the top.

I'm undecided on it's age so far. Recent or old? There's a bit of ware to the base and it was very dusty on the inside. A few scratches and most of them I removed with a pencil rubber. Still needs cleaning on the outside as it has some sort of white residue on it which just comes off with a rubber, so far.

BTW, OTT, I'm having a little holiday for three days in Hexham soon. It's a four star hotel and I've never been on holiday before like this so I'm feeling a bit nervous. The strange thing is I'm only interested in the car boots and charity shops not the sauna's or golf courses etc.  :roll:  :lol:

So you won't see any of my serious comments for three hole days.  :D

It doesn't strike me as Murano ....but maybe Italian.
Looks quite nicely made.

A broken pontil on this kind of foot could indicate a number of things - not necessarily bad...ie small studio production for example.

Thanks Peter.  :)  

I don't usually go for green (not outside of a car anyway) but I think it deserves a place of it's own. One for the cabinet I think 8)

Bump.

Maybe this one should be moved to the glass section?
