CAN ANYONE PLEASE HELP IDENTIFY THIS PAPERWEIGHT DOOR KNOB
« on: March 05, 2023, 05:38:52 PM »
Hi everyone,
Please bear with me as I am new on here.
I would be very grateful if any of you experts can assist in identifying this glass doorknob.
I thought I knew the canes but then something made think I was wrong. I feel I'm going round in circles.
Pictures attached but not sure if I'm doing this right.

I agree.  This is Murano, not Clichy.

Thank you for your replies, I see the resemblance in the mushroom, which, by the way, looks a mighty fine Murano, I've never seen one like that. This is all very fascinating and very much appreciated.
