KevH, thank you for your post. I guess I'll chalk this up to another Murano. I'm certainly not disappointed but wish I could find out more -- like age, why the bottom is not finished, possible maker .... oh, all those little things ':lol:'.
There are a few more weights I would appreciate assistance with but right now I must go out and make $$$$ to support my habit (paperweights, that is).
All the best ..... Lily
