Help needed to ID two of three pieces - could be Murano
« on: October 29, 2006, 01:02:18 PM »
In the GLASS FORUM, there's a new thread entitled: 3 new glass pieces - much ID needed CAITHNESS MURANO?

Any help from Murano experts in identifying the two pieces that could be Murano would be greatly appreciated. Please take a look at that thread. The link is below.

Thanks so much.

I would definitely say that the red (last) one was Murano. I've got one that people here on the board have identified as Murano that also those clear pieces around the rim. But no one has identified who. My coloration is very different from yours (opaque).  :wink:  :)

Thanks Carolyn. I felt the red one is Murano. I wonder if the purple basket is one of those Fenton creations, but I know nothing about Fenton Glass except that they sell an awful lot of it on the QVC shopping channel.
