This fish and the next pair I am posting seem to be made by different processes can you tell me where from?

I notice you think both fish blocks are by Cedenese.  The one fish block seems folded at the top and the two fish block folded at the bottom and the two fish block glass is has a green tint to it where the one fish is very clear.  Are these style differences?

Thanks

William

Im no expert on these but Jon has 5, and they are all quite different in stly and colour, like your 2 fish one he has a large one fish which is made with what looks like 2 pieces of glass pressed together, and a smaller one fish which is almost identical to this one.
I would definitly say both of yours are Murano just different makers/styles
If you type Cenedese there are quite a few on ebay here is quite a nice example http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Massives-50s-60s-AQUARIUM-GINO-CENEDESE-Murano-/290444094794?cmd=ViewItem&pt=Glas_Kristall&hash=item439fd12d4a
They come in different shapes, colours, styles, sizes, amount of fish and so on, It appears the more fish the better and obviously the bigger the better
But a word of warning there are alot of chinese fish paperweights/blocks and so on but you can tell the difference because of the quality (not so easy from a picture on a computer screen though)

by the way should have said the price on this one is a little OTT but some do go for quite a bit
