*** NOT MURANO ART GLASS ***
I am posting this because the label can fools us. Of course when I found this and saw the name SEGUSO I was sure this was Murano Glass. I found this in my early days...but I figured I found a Great piece (it is a nice piece in its own way....). The label was there. Had the name SEGUSO on it. Printed in Gold, with a Crown on Top. Gotta be MURANO GLASS -- BUT NO. It is Glass *Made in the Style of Murano Glass Italy* and ACTUALLY MADE IN MARIO SEGUSO CA'D'ORO SHOP IN "" BRAZIL"".
A name that one would figure was Murano Glass - but not.
NOT made in Murano Italy at all --------> but " BRAZIL ".
It is nice looking but it kinda rubs me the wrong way (personally) but that is just me. I keep this as a reminder of a learning Tool. Not all appears to be what it is - Even sometimes with a full label.
Live and Learn.... ;-)
