Murano 'Cauliflower'
« on: September 22, 2006, 09:35:09 AM »
I've just bought this Murano weight, which I think looks like a cauliflower!  It's actually made up of two concentric rings of Clichy-style roses, around a central rose. - but in green and white!  ((Hence the 'Cauliflower'  :lol: ) http://glassgallery.yobunny.org.uk/albums/userpics/10048/normal_Murano__Cauliflower__weight.jpg

It has a label on the base, which I think reads 'Mazzega Murano', which is one I haven't heard of before.  http://glassgallery.yobunny.org.uk/albums/userpics/10048/Murano_Cauliflower_label.jpg

Any ideas?  Comments?  Should I post the label in the Murano forum?

Hi Leni,  :D

I found some great links to Murano glasshouses the other day, which I posted in the Murano forum.
Yours is amongst the list:

Thanks very much, Della!     :D

Doesn't say anything on their website about cauliflowers, though!  :lol:

It reminds me of the canal-style painted roses Leni, and I think it's lovely.

Hi Leni

I have a paperweight with identical roses other than a red outer  circle picture at  http://i10.tinypic.com/2iuonlk.jpg  The weight is a mini - just 2" diameter.

There is no label but I brought it on the assumption it was probably Murano - your labelled weight would seem to prove it !

Regards

Derek

Hmmm.  didn't see that before, Lynne.  I don't think it's 3Fiori myself, although the small flowers are similar.  

Having seen the Clichy-style roses in three different weights now, and mine having the label, I'd be tempted to say they were all Mazzega weights.  However, I know from Jackie Lindsay, the Murano paperweight expert, that some of the weights which were labelled ALT were made by 3Fiori, and that many artists seemed to make weights for  different glasshouses.  

I think we need a Murano expert to speak on this one!
