    Hi there. Have a couple of Glass Figurines ( I never call these people type of one Figures). They are between 6.5 inches and almost 7 inches with gold foil in them. They have a iridescent to them. The Green has NO glow to it (rats :cry: ) but I checked. Pontil scar on the bottom. Anyone have any idea on the maker or the age?? The Price tag at the store said Art Glass from the 40's BUT I do not think they are that old.....but then who knows. I am 99.9999 % they are Murano but as for the Maker//Age - I do not know. Would this finish be called *Iridato* ?? which I guess means the same as Iridescent. What is your opinion on the MAKER//AGE. THXS

    I did find something similar here that are iridescent (Iridato):

      Here is one similar to one of mine. Sold in 2013 for almost $ 200 for just one.

      Geeez.....the description there says a "slightly naughty version of the traditional blown glass figurine..." Gee, I never looked at it that way as when you see them as a PAIR -- it is just clear iridescent glass.

      ...Maybe just being sold by herself -- she gave off that *vibe* . I love these pieces!!
