Your Piece looks Murano // Venetian to me!  Nice find with label!!

E & R is for: Ebeling & Reuss.  Might be an Import label??

 :D

Kinda reminds me of a Blue piece I bought *CLICK here*

Hi,

The glass is Murano. The label if from a US importing company, Ebeling and Reuss, known primarily for ceramics, but which also imported glass from Murano and Czechoslovakia. Can't help with the Murano maker, though. Late 1950's, I'd say.

[ref post by Antiquerose123 above]

Yes, definitely an import label. And yours does look similar! I finally found one like mine on ebay, but blue, and without a label, that the seller says is murano (although not sure how it was id'd).  Thank you!!  It was full of glass candies too - very pretty!

Hi katpud,  welcome to the Board.

I have merged info into this message from the duplicate posting you made in the Glass forum. Please do not post the same topic in more than one forum as it causes problems when several replies are made to each post.
