Murano Glass Lamps....I Think?
« on: January 16, 2019, 02:22:41 PM »
Picked up these beautiful glass lamps yesterday at the thrift store for $45.00. I believe these are Murano? I originally thought aventurine, but the flecks are more copper colored. Is that still aventurine or is it referred to as something else? Can they be attributed to a certain artist? What about appro age? Thanks for any help or input! Always much appreciated!

Aventurine is usually copper. Gold is incorrectly referred to as aventurine sometimes

I have found some similar lamps. They are being attributed to either Fratelli Toso or Dino Martens. Any way to be sure?

Not sure who made them but a friend has a large lamp with similar spiral work but his has silver between lines. It has a Cenedese label on it.

Great buy and possibly 50/60's.
Clean and Crisp a Murano twist.
Archimede tops my list.
