I believe this is a Pilgrim glass Madonna - WV origination. It is not a Blenko piece but it has the style that Joel Myers used for a period of time. Has anyone seen one of these?

    Hi WVdalgal
    I have the same Madonna but for my oppinion is Murano .

    or

    But yors don't have a "Aureola" the weel around the Head .

    I have an opinion (authorized) that it might be Murano but mine doesn't have the halo around the head (as you noticed) or any facial features. It doesn't have a shape in that the glass doesn't curve inward. Only the blue area inside shows the shape of the drape on the Madonna.
    I really think it is a PILGRIM glass piece. I have never seen one very similar to it.
    Thanks.

    I think it's Pilgrim too.

    Hello Amber. Not trying to be cool, but why do you think it is Pilgrim?
  9. AmberRose AmberRose, 2 years ago
    Hi wv, couple of reasons...Pilgrim put out a Madonna that is considered on of the best they put out, colors are similar to Pilgrim and honestly...it just has that feel.
    I hate when people tell me that, sorry.
    Have a great day!
