Haven't seen this 'pulled loop' decor' before on this type of glass,it looks a little Chinese to me,especially the clear applied pieces,could be wrong(it has been known!)

Wait until some one else comments,I could well be wrong,it's always wise to see what others say before taking any drastic action,if you like them keep them who cares if they are Chinese,it's what you like that matters,

I agree, they are very similar to this kind of Chinese vase....

I might add, i couldn't find any under the Chinese category so i used my little grey cells and found it in the Murano section.  ::)

I would keep them, but then i'd keep anything.

strange how things work out that i should list them here and now ...when one pops up on Ebay.
So if they are like the dealers here...hmmmm ...everthing heavy is Murano.

Mod: One sentence, relating to Norman's reason for choosing to bin his item, has been moved from here and included in a new thread in the Cafe, where general thoughts on "buying from China" can be discussed.

thanks for looking really appreciate it all.

Similar style to some of these, but the pulled loop is a new one on me... the applied clear motif is very typical though: Chinese glass - http://www.theglassmuseum.com/Chinese.html

I think it's mix of decors and the sloppiness of the pulled loops that give it away.

Mod: this thread has been cleaned of the non-item specific comments and a new thread created in the Cafe for general discussion on "buying from China".
