Help me ID my first glass!
« on: February 14, 2020, 09:21:20 PM »
Hi all! 😀 I'm excited to join this wonderful community!  ;D I bought (I think is murano) green glass dolphin with some metal flack (silver?) romb shape pattern. Weight approx.400g/14,10 ounces. Length from nose to flukes is approx.18,5cm/7,28 inches, height from surface to dorsal fin top is approx. 9cm/3,54 inches, width from flipper to flipper is approx. 8,5cm/3,34 inches.

Hi
People will ask for photo of the base which will help with an ID.

As base you mean some kind of stand?

I just mean the underside.
It's difficult to identify because it's a bit of a generic style. I do have a dolphin that's very similar to yours in style. Mine is signed on the underside imbetween the two fins. I think mine is by Nason, although I wouldn't like to say yours is for sure. Have you checked carefully for a signature?

Actually it looks as if you did provide a photo of the underside in your first photo - sorry if I confused you!

How big/small signature should be? I don't see any signature
