Love these goblets. Picked them up recently at a barn sale. I have reason to believe they are likely Italian, but am no expert. I recall stuff like this in the 60's. Would love to identify these.

    Can someone help me to identify these?

    I know nothing about glass and can't identify the country of origin. Your goblets are really lovely but you didn't show the bottom, which would indicate if they were hand-blown (if there is a pontil mark).

    Here is a tortoise shell glass bowl that is similar that states it was made in Murano. Many manufacturers have made glassware with the faux tortoise shell design since it is so popular.

    For reference only, here is a bowl that states it was made in Murano:

    Sorry, yes, they do have punt marks. They also exhibit slight irregularities, including some small bubbles. Very definitely hand blown.
