Two vintaqe Murano paperweights ??
« on: March 31, 2021, 01:02:29 PM »
Hello All,

The two paperweights of the attached pictures came from my mum's collection. They have been sitting in a box for at least 30 years.

I am trying to find out who the producer might be....I know, it is very difficult without a signature or any other marks. Considering the millefiori murrine and the avventurina inclusions I thought they might be from Murano, probably produced in the 1920/30s.

Can somobody provide more detailed information ?

I also have two more, quite different, that I might publish separately, once I get to take the photos...

Thank you !

Andrea

Sorry, I am still fighting with the image resizing tool...the pictures included in the previous message were too small. I think I have got a better size now......I hope:
