I'm not convinced that these were made in Murano. Somewhere else in Italy is possible, but I wouldn't rule out Mexican or Chinese.

Hi Brownie,
On the origianl picture... I recently saw a Bull sculpture in similar style and colors with an actual Mexican label on it (which was my hunch about them). I dont have the link now since my computer crashed.

What would "Russian Murano glass" be - or what does it mean, and how does Mexico fit in? Thanks.

Since the "Murano" is in quotation marks, is the implication that it is made in Russia, "in the Murano style"?  Bit naughty, but I have heard of quotation marks used in that way  :evil:  :roll:
