Murano Glass

Murano glass is not the name of a factory but the name of an island off the shore of Venice, Italy.  In the 10th century they became known for their glasswork and many old factories still operate today.  The following pictures show the few pieces we have.

This vase is one of two that we have that are almost the same.  The larger picture is of the front, the picture with the sticker the back.

This smaller pink vase is also marked Murano.

This is the only paperweight in my collection marked Murano.
