ID request: Complex closepack millefiori. ID = Murano
« on: October 15, 2016, 12:52:53 AM »
When I first saw this one, I considered Richardson due to the white border, but I understand they didn't make complex canes?

It seems nicely made. It has a smooth polished, slightly concave, base.

It's relatively flat and wide. The base is clear, and you can see through between the canes.

The millefiori sit relatively high in the body. They are colourful, but relatively muted, I've tried to show a good approximation of the colours in the overall shots, the closeup of the canes is probably a bit too saturated though.

What are your thoughts, please?

It's Murano - late 20th century.

Thank you Alpha, from the cane patterns I had a suspicion it might be!

Any idea of the maker?
