I wouldn't know, Nick, but it would be better if you could word your post to make it clear that this is "in your opinion".

That saves the board from getting into any trouble,  :)
The seller could have been (mis)informed and listed it in good faith.

Hi Nick

In my opinion too it is a fake, and I would say so in a court of law. I had a fairly similar weight with green and white marbrie design, but no fake mark! I have told the seller it is a fake - it will be interesting to see if there is any response.

In my opinion - made by Eugenio Ferro (if I spelled that correctly) of Murano. Circa 1970's

It's certainly Murano, I can't even recall seeing a Baccarat marbrie, did they ever make any?

Seller has amended listing I see, to say it is a fake signed Baccarat.
