Found these glasses at a flee market
« on: July 14, 2014, 09:58:47 PM »
I'm from the Netherlands and I picked up these glasses at a flee market.
The woman selling them told me they where from her mother (the woman herself was around 50 years old).
There are no marks on them and I couldn't find anything about these glasses.

Can somebody help ID them?

Welcome!  :) I have not seen that particular shape before, but my gut feeling tells me that this  could be Murano.  Then again, could be bohemian?  Not too sure.  ???     Hopefully someone more specialized on the subject matter will be able to confirm or identify this.   A picture of the base aslo will help with identification.   Is there any visible markings, which normally  are found around the base area?

Hi Kevin, welcome to the GMB.
These glasses were made at Bormioli in Parma some time during the 1960s.
So Italian, yes - Murano no.

Hello Ivo,

Thanks for your reply! I searched on the internet a bit, but I can't find info on them.
Do you know where I can find info on them?

Kind regards,

Kevin
