Murano maker?
« on: June 06, 2014, 10:49:41 AM »
Hi all,

I have had this lovely basket weight in my collection for a while now. I believe it to be Murano but do not know the maker. Does anyone know?

Bump!

Could it be Fratelli Toso? The flowers look like those in Fratelli Toso's weights...

Any help would be appreciated.

Hi all,

For the sake of completion, I have been told that this lovely flower basket paperweight is by Fratelli Toso as I came to suspect. However, I am yet to see one with a label and I have no idea about the date of production. So any other info regarding this weight is still very welcome.
