Can you post a close up of the label it might give a better indication.

The label looks like it is a general murano label and hard to ID to any particular maker. Have a look in the labels files at the top of this page.

Good news is that it appears to be Murano and not a chinese imitation!

Hi, what are the similarities you see please?

I have a couple of Walsh tumblers and they are quite different to the one you show, both in terms of cut and also the way the engraved design is done.  The shape is a similar bonnet shape though, but cutting and design very different.
I'm just wondering if perhaps they are different because of age when produced perhaps?
Mine are marked Walsh iirc.
The Walsh fruiting vine pattern I think is typified by a particular marker to the way it's engraved (open to correction here).  Your fruiting vine pattern doesn't appear to be engraved with that marker. But it is difficult to tell on the photos.
Have you checked the base to see if yours are signed Walsh?  They might well be,it can be very difficult to see the Walsh stamp so best to look for it under very bright light.

I have the Walsh book but it is incredibly difficult to look up their designs as the patterns are so tiny,and no time at the mo to check.

Hello :) Could you please help me to identify this vase? It's very heavy, probably crystal. I will be grateful for any suggestion.
Glass Paperweights / Re: PART 2. ID? Help please

Hi frnkvdw,

I think it is a Bohemian spider, the central bubble is the body and the white stripes are the legs.  c 1900-1930.
