Thanks, TC.   I seem to have had this whole subject of Nazeing fish wrong.    I can't see anyone going to the trouble of moving that perfectly genuine Murano label on to a fish.    Also I can't envisage Belgian glassmakers making their fish on Murano, and then moving to Hertfordshire!

Apologies to everyone for this.

I can. In fact I consider it very likely! Who wants to track down the, possibly older, Belgian variants of this particular shaping/tooling and the variations of the apprentices?

Who would have thought that an Austrian lad would become a glass-blower, follow stints various German and Scottish glassworks end up making Ysart style vases in Stourbridge. But he did

Frank — I think you are flogging a dead horse.

However, may I make myself clear.   The fish with split tails that I formerly believed were Nazeing have changed status.   We have certainly not proved that they are not Nazeing, nor have we proved that they are Murano.   We have one example in a fairly homogeneous cased colour that is definitely Murano.   That cannot be extrapolated to attributing all split tail fish, particularly those with splashes of colour, to Murano.    Until more information emerges they are unattributable.
