It should be Ballarin. Two brothers Francesco & Mario started a company called F&M Ballarin. Two master artists that created many beautiful murano glass pieces including mine. Their label is located on the front of his red and white jacket. No sure if you had received this message earlier, but still waiting for appraisal for this item. Regards Tony
Sorry, just saw this and finished it - thanks!
Sorry my mistake! There is a label on the front of his red and white jacket that says Ballarin Murano. Ballarin is the last name for Francesco and Mario two master glass artist brothers who started a company F & M Ballarin. They created many beautiful murano glass pieces including mine.
