Murano Dolphin ID = Oball, Murano
« on: October 25, 2006, 12:36:56 PM »
I just got this super murano dolphin with this label from the gallery

Please does anyone have any idea who this company is etc. The dolphin is in the same glass as this duck that I have

It shines purple in the daylight.

Hi Pat,

Here is their website:

If I know, I'll comment. If I think I know, I'll have a go. If I have no idea, I'll just keep quiet and learn from others, so the next time I'll know.

Pat, the label posting was mine and is on an owl figurine in green and blue glass.

There's some nice stuff on their site. A modern twist on classic styles. Even some for Chuggy! :shock:

There's a Chinese figure on there that I missed in one of the charity shops.  :(

At the time, I was having a debate on whether it was Chinese or not, oops. :oops:

Well, it looked Chinese.  :lol:

Yes David I know it was your label. I posted the link to the duck auction before I bought it. I am so pleased with the duck and dolphin I love the colours and they are beautifully made. I assume your  owl is also very nice.

The sculptures were made by Oball Murano. Find a description of their furnace in the mentioned link.
