    These were the paperweights that were in the thrift today...I asked the lady to tuck away the two I didn't get...

    Now I think I need to go back for them, maybe. After watching the video racer4four guided me to, which was very interesting I saw another showing Murano Millefiori Paperweights. Another amazing video, then looked them up just to see what they went for. Yes, very surprised, but I'm thinkin' the one shown above maybe not so much?!? I had a feeling while I was there, that's why I took some pics of it.

    I also found out that the "copy-cats" are making fake ones of these too.

    So can I get any opinions???

      BEAUTIFUL!!!

      They are pretty , but I would say all 3 are modern chinese, and not real actual Murano Millefiori....But it is all a matter of what one likes.

      You can see much more detail in a Murano Millefiori, for comparison:

      I'm with Rose on this.
      If you like them , get them, but I don't think this is Murano!

      I'm with the gang and think modern Chinese. For better or worse, my rule is this...if it isn't signed or marked (unless obvious) it's probably Chinese

      I agree with you too on the Millefiori antiquerose, the ones I saw online are simply amazing! The one here on the right, just doesn't seem "right" to me, you know what I mean? I guess everything is copied by someone which makes it so important for one to know what they are purchasing...you could loose a lot of money if you don't, right!?! Then there are those times we all get lucky now and then :)

      I'm sticking with the one I got, although I like the green, it's just "missing" something to me...maybe if they were "controlled" bubbles.

      Thank you all, sean, antiquerose, racer, Phil and Amber, for your comments and sharing your knowledge with me, I really appreciate it!
      And thanks for the loves Mani, Mike and agh!

      And Phil, my thought is I never wash any older glass in hot water, always tepid and usually with a part of that oh so lovely smelling vinegar, lol!!! It works.

      the one in the middle is by K's Collection "Made in China" they were sold at the "Dollar Tree" store's.

      Really Melanie? I'm surprised at that...I've really gotten used to it and think it fits well with all my cobalt...That's actually kinda funny, I paid a couple bucks over the $1 lol... I like it tho. Thx for the info.

      shareurpassion I will post some picture's tomorrow of the ones I have at work that I purchased at The Dollar Tree to hold my paperwork down (purchased over 10yrs ago). I had to find them after seeing your post.....and they both still have the felt and sticker on them. I will post a picture of both w/ the felt and sticker then I will remove the felt and sticker from one and post that picture. Not to say that it's not beautiful because I have held on to these for yrs just because I liked them. One is flower and the other is underwater scene with a fish.
