another id? ID = Murano
« on: March 12, 2014, 05:25:20 PM »
this paperweight is a little bit smaller than the last one i posted- about 2.3-3 inches. i inherited this PW with the last one i posted. I can make out a couple letters inside some of the canes-i can make out an I, a Y, and either a C or an O.
I had a local PW collector look at this and he thought it was Clichy, but once again, I'm just not that lucky!

Not a Clichy. Looks like Murano.

Yes, Murano. Cane colours and forms suggest Fratelli Toso.

The "letters" inside canes are not letters but just slippage of parts of the cane structure - quite common with some canes. True letters in canes are usually very clear once they are noted.
