Thanks for the additional photo, Joyce.
Ebay is becoming increasingly a retail platform with selling prices rarely disclosed and no vetting of how much people ask for things (some are asking a high price hoping they can find someone who will buy it at their asking price)
Unsigned Murano pieces of this size bring less than $500 at auction, typically in the range I have valued this at.
Let us know if you have additional questions!
