Hello and welcome to the board. Photos would be useful but please add them to the board rather than host them elsewhere, so they don't disappear at a future date. The board is intended to be a permanent reference source about glass. Thanks!
PS if you need help in uploading images see my techie tips in the Help forum here,22.0.html
Cheers! Anne, da tekniqual wizzerd

Balboa last shipment to dept stores
« Reply #2 on: August 18, 2023, 11:42:41 PM »
Shipping container I have I about determined it's balboas last shipment of glass .. nos Italian lamp parts ..

I've got a lot of info from other social media but to much misinformation to decide what is true what is false .. this seems like a lot of good people read a lot of posts ..with a little help I can explain balboa the dept store lamps and solve mystery of Balboa that's been going on since 1955 ..

Question one ok why did an importer have export stickers .. this one zeroed me in he wouldn't he had a furnace... Maybe 2 he had Paul wholesale sticker too .... I've about seen that one and need to know rule about export stickers on island .. we all know Balboa is not a factory or anything on Murano island .. it is in new York city  so is Paul's .. ok not a Murano export sticker then where did he make his glass .. when I see a Balboa venetion glass sticker ya know what I see ... A generic made in Italy with no mention of location and a business name .. not a guarantee of where glass was made or even if it is venetion .. it clearly states this is balboas venition glass .. not Murano ..

Second how do stickers work .. can glass from empoli campania and Murano have same sticker or are they regional ..? This will explain everything. .. phone is about dead let me charge it come back with pictures ..
