Description

16 glass flowers and leaves. Varying colors of light pink, dark pink, iridescent gold and iridescent orange. Varying heights of flowers. Some flowers and leaves stems are extremely curved. This is what makes me think it is murano glass originally from a chandelier because there is no other explanation why this would be curved so much. The flower head bends at an angle. It is almost at 90 degrees. All but one flowers are in cement in a small silver base. If you were to stand the base flat the flowers are at varying slanted angles, not standing up straight. Height as follows 1 tall dark pink flower straight:15.5 inches 1 dark pink flower that curves so that flower points at a 90 degree angle from point of insertion: 9.5 1 small dark pink flower straight: 5 3 straight iridescent orange flowers: 11 1 iridescent gold flower straight: 10.5 4 light pink flower straight: 9.25 2 light pink flower straight: 10.5 1 iridescent gold leaf straight 11.5 1 iridescent gold leaf straight: 14 1 iridescent gold leaf curved : 7

What does this mean?

Hi Christina,

Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry.
These are arms from a glass chandelier, probably made in Murano, an island near Venice, Italy, at some point in the 20th century. If you had the body that these pieces fitted into, it would be worth $1,000-1,500; as just the parts, this is worth $300-500 as a fair-market value, for auction purposes. Retail or asking price may vary.

Please let us know if you have additional items to appraise, and thank you for using Mearto.
