Delicate tazza made of light honey coloured glass, decorated with two blue glass trails and 4 lion's heads prunts.
Foot with folded over rim, snapped off pontil.
Diameter 11 cm, height 6.5 cm.

Looks convincingly Murano to me (but I have been wrong before ;) ).

Any help in identifying maker (and age) very much appreciated!

The closest I could find was >> this 19th century Salviati goblet with similarly shaped prunts.

Thanks,
Michael

Could well be Salviati, the style, prunts, blue threads and fumé glass all fit. I read somewhere that they had over 1500 patterns during this time period, so not finding an exact match is no surprise.

A lovely tazza, it looks like it was made with real confidence.
