Glass Fruit - Acorns? Gourds? Venini? Murano?
« on: October 09, 2006, 12:48:50 PM »
Hello, new to this board, hope I did this right. Anyway, I have these 3 jars. The largest is 8 1/2" tall and the smaller ones are 6 1/2" tall. No signature, smooth bottom, substantial weight and thick glass (largest one weighs 1 1/2 lbs) The stalks or stems are applied. I bought them at an auction where they were listed as Venetian glass. Just looking to confirm that. Thank you in advance.

They're very cute, but I don't think they were made in Murano. I can't tell for sure, but they don't look Venetian to me.

Hello Fourwinns4fun
Thanks for your post, but I agree with Laura. I dont think these are Murano pieces. I'll move it to the main Glass section for you. You will get more help there.
