    I call it an "all-in" because it seems to contain all the different techniques of glass decoration . I'm not sure it's even a Murano piece.....if it is, who could have made it? There are five bands of decoration, the first one with Aventurine inside an emerald green layer, another containing black & white spiral canes, next to it is a yellow, blue & white rods in a Ruby & Sapphire band, next to that is a band with multi-colored spatter in a silver layer and finally the copper Aventurine bubbles in a Gold/Amber band. It's a small dish measuring only 3" in diameter and 1 1/2" tall. The front is smooth but the back is slightly "pebbled". Anyone recognize the maker? RER(BOB)

      it is next to impossible to identify this kind of art glass piece. it is not a blown it is fused glass, and as such the threshold of making piece like it is quite low (one electric furnace could be acquired for couple of thousands $) as opposed to blown glass where investment is considerably more substantial.

      So to summarize it is fun piece to make and to behold, but it is closer to the category of folk art than art glass and the maker usually is not identifiable.

      I realize that it's not "High-end" glass but it had that "buy me to find out more about me look" so here tis! Thanks for your input MacArt! and thanks Lisa-lighting for your love. BOB

      i looked at it again , because i was on EMU (epileptic monitoring unit) and i dont want to do a sloppy job . so i run heritage database for mad art my first opinion , well i am obsessed meticolous , because i cant stand losing but could not find it , this aint u run of the mill piece, i think the first layer contains stains hard to say if it are goldstains probably not, the second layer, i have seen worst in millifiori murano , the third layer layer is awesome vibrant, the fourth layer , he suffered from a hangover from the bourbon, because there is blotting and i dont like the dissipation , i think it,s american , but its an amateur shot of me , because this is not a planking stile
