I am not actually a collector of Murano glass specifically but I think I  
  had a good buy with the following:

  Went to a boot fair & picked up a piece of blue glass, signed on the
  After extensive research (the writing is etched & really loopy, hard to
  read) - I figured out the letters deMajo, Murano, followed by Y Ohira
  From what I have since read about this guy he would appear to be
  rather popular!  It is a blue bottle/vase with a bulbous bit near the top,
  in perfect condition.  

  Can anyone give me any other info on this piece (can email photos if  
  necessary) - I think this is what is termed one of his 'early' pieces as he
  seems to have worked in Murano for only about 10/12 years.

  Any assistance would be much appreciated.  Thanks JC

I split the your question from the Best Bargain thread for you.
