That's a nice little collection , yes Venetian / Murano around turn of century probably F Toso and Salviati what a bargain .All very good examples of different techniques including Fenicio .

Thanks John,i'll start looking up the techniques, fenicio i've just looked up and it reminds me of feathered slipware in pottery but i don't know if the technique is similar,they do look edible as a group i've got to say and i was late getting there today so a very nice surprise considering you can often blank even getting there on time!
