Is This Murano Glass?
« on: August 14, 2006, 05:11:11 PM »
I am hoping you will be able to help me identify the glass bowl pictured here.



It measures 3" high by 5 1/2" diameter across the top and weighs 1.4 pounds. A set of 8 of these were purchased new during the 1960's. There are no markings or labels. It has been suggested that it is Venetian (Murano?) glass. I would very much appreciate any help you can give me.

Thank you for your time.

Hello suttondsus,
Thanks for your post...
I actually have a similar set, only of 4, with Barbini labels.
They have gold flecks in them and have a pedestal base.
Do your bowls have a pedestal base to them?
I dont see that they have gold, but I think they are Murano.

Hello Javier,
Thank you for taking the time to reply... yes, they do have a pedestal base.  Any idea who the artist (manufacturer?) is?

Seeing you've had an attribution now, can I add that I think your little flower bowls are lovely  :D  :D  I suppose each petal was formed and attached by hand, I think it's lovely craftsmanship.  Gorgeous!  :D

One thing on attribution.
I am comparing them to mine from the style, but these could also be Salviati. I have seen many candle holders with Salviati labels that look like them too.
