Murano or not? ID = Chinese
« on: June 08, 2018, 12:39:17 PM »
Can anyone give me a definitive opinion on the maker of this style of glass vase. They have never been my thing and Ive always assumed them to be 60s Murano. Recently I have been coming across similar vases described as Stevens and Williams. Can this be possible.?
Thanks for your interest

Hello Angela, I could not have wished for a more definitive reply!!
Thank you so much for improving my rather embarrassing lack of knowledge on the subject and for the images which will haunt me for some time to come.
