Glass Paperweights / Re: Old Murano Paperweight - ID Help Please
« Last post by KevinH on Yesterday at 05:56:20 PM »
Yes, and the teal / turquoise colour of some cane pieces seem to be the same as in my weight.

Also it has elongated air bubbles which also appear in mine at the same position in the weight. I do not think they are fractures as there is no "mirrored effect" that is usually seen with cracks.

Hello Rosie,the swans are very different,Mdina and Whitefriars,l have a ruby one which Ettore made as soon as l can l will post a photo.Maybe that might help you,the Mdina's were much smaller infact l don't know if they still make.There were also green dogs like the one Chris has,so it could well be one of the MDG Hope this can help you

Here's a great stumper: ....(2 photos) Green/White Slag Glass Turtle, 5" long x 3 1.2" wide x 2" tall, there is a mold line that looks like a 2-part mold (look at the 1st photo). I have no idea why the indent on the underside - 1 7/8" round x 1" deep, last photo shows Makers Mark "PL" .... I have searched the internet for weeks to no avail.
The mark looks just like that of San Francisco Glass Works or Pacific Glass Works makers mark, P over an L See last picture and attached link.

Hi Mike,the factory where my father worked in Murano was different from the one in Naples.The one l remember and was the last is Vetreria Auriemma,the production he had for himself was on work for chandeliers,in the 1960 they seemed to be very fashionable,there were  some made up with leaves and flowers and also  arms in glass.I will have to look through some old papers l still have  and note books  of my father ,with notes of different recipes for glass, in case there maybe some names of factories.

Thank you for the Muranozoo site,had a glance and it is fascinating but l don't know any  of the names there.

                                             Best regards,Maria

I think you also may have found who made is as that huge house has a large collection of Boston & Sandwich glass & they made opaline. Very well done & good for you. ;)

Getting rid of shadows is mostly about diffusing your light sources. My set-up for transparent glass is mostly back-lit using reflected light on a large white backdrop, with a single lightbox on a boom stand at the front to light up details.

British & Irish Glass / Re: Dartington Studio Bowl

Thanks!
This one is an unusual construction isn't it? I'm sure they normally turn out with a sort of mosaic-like pattern of white "grouting" and blue interior "tiles". This is more stretched out into itself, giving a much more cloudy appearance and different colours on each side.

Found an example with a pic here. :)

although I cannot help you with identification, I can compliment you on outstanding photography. what kind of setup did you use to photograph, especially elimination of shadows?
