« on: July 25, 2011, 12:42:28 AM »
Hi to everyone, My partner & i recently made arrangements with an elderly lady,to sell her collectables as she has had to move into an old peoples home.
These 2 red,orange,yellow & clear glass art vases were among the things,are they Murano ? & if so does anyone know who the maker is & what era would they have been made ?

Hi there:

Just a guess -- but the second orange one with the tall arms appears to be Chalet, or Lorraine Glass from Canada.  These were glass makers that immigrated to from Murano, Italy to here in Canada to start their own glass wares here.  Thus the name Chalet, and Lorraine glass.  The second one arms, style, and base (and color) look like it too me, IMHO.

Others may have other opinions, as I am just throwing that out there.  So I am *thinking* the second one is Chalet/or Lorraine Glass from Canada

You can take a look at these site here:

Just MHO, here...
