Is this dish Murano?
« on: July 18, 2006, 03:43:42 PM »
Hi all,  :lol:

On a recent shopping expedition to Belgium, I managed to pick up this dish. It weighs over 1.5kg, although it isn't very large, 14cm wide and 7.5cm high (sorry, I don't have an inch tape measure)
It is quite difficult to photograph, but the outer layer is light blue/grey.


 :shock: Click to enlarge :shock:

As always, many thanks for any input.  :D
Enjoying being in the Midlands.......some people are just amazing....

Della the shape is certainly a classic Murano one, but the colour combination looks unusual to me.

I would have thought this is from one of the Belgian factories - just don't ask me which.
