Striking red ashtray.
« on: June 28, 2006, 04:25:11 AM »
Hello to the Murano site.

I,ve been advised on the glass site to try here as it could be Murano.

Information please on this great looking red ashtray

180mm wide x 110mm tall.

weighs an impressive 5 lbs

white whorls inside bowl.

A layer of intense red outside the white which reflects through
the clear glass body.

In the clear glass is gold black and white giving a stunning effect.

The bottom is ground smooth 90mm across

I think I,ve got the links right this time. Fingers crossed.

Thanks in anticipation
