are any of these any good?
« on: October 20, 2006, 02:32:57 PM »
I was thinking of maybe trying to get these birds/animals at auction tomorrow - I am assuming they are just generic Murano, but does anyone recognise anything good about them that would make me value them higher?  

thanks!

Your instinct is spot-on. These are circa 1970s "generic" Murano figurines.  They might have some decorative value at an antique show, but in my experience are very hard to sell, especially online.

Thanks Laura, I think I may give them a miss .  I do like them myself, but as you say, they don't exactly fly off the shelf....

I like the green pony and the red fawn. Very Glass menagerie.
