Thanks Christine, this was the only piece that my husband previously checked and was fairly sure it was Murano but not sure from where or when... we really like this little piece and were just looking at their site and are thinking this has the uranium effect ...running to get a torch  :D

You need a special UV torch. It might be uranium; it might not be. Can't tell from the photo of this one. These date from the 50s/60s perhaps 70s but are hard to pin down to a maker
