Not a very good week for shopping the thrifts I'm afraid. Donations are down all over the area. Salvation even has signs in their window that they need donations sooo........This is a re-post from a year ago. I've been reading the posts about the great Murano vs China debate. This is a good example of "what it is" being more important that "what it's not". What it is is a wonderful piece of art glass. What it's not is anywhere near Italy. That being said I only had one suggestion after all this time that it's possibly Rikaro crystal. There are a few more glass people here on CW than in the past year so I thought I'd re-post and get some fresh opinions.

Found this awesome hand blown art glass fish at Volunteers of America this afternoon. It's large at 15 1/2 " tall and done in four colors. I love the ruby red fins and tail. The body is hollow and open at the mouth. I won't even try to ID it but it looks vintage judging by the bottom. It's also in perfect condition ! -Mike-
