I added photos to the website. This used to have a sticker on the bottom showing it was Murano glass and I think the artist. It stuck to the cabinet it was on years ago and ruined the sticker. It’s 2 shades of amber and blue and clear. I’ve seen one you can have made to order from a company in Italy. and it’s all blue and clear for $1900. I paid around $400 20 years ago from a jewelry store. Not sure how long they had it or where they got it.

Hi Chad,
Thanks for your message and the additional photos.
There is a vast quantity of Murano of all qualities on the secondary resale market at the moment and, with less demand than supply, prices are modest compared to what they are currently listed at by dealers. This may be the work of the Sommerso studio, which produced lots of lovely vases and dishes with that distinctive cased look. Another element that elevates some pieces of Murano is the presence of a signature, which it appears this doen't have.
