    Another of my Murano PW's. I know, I'm a Murano freak. I so much that I have most of the really good stuff packed away. I am going to have to sell a lot of it soon, due to financial matters. Hopefully, I can get some good photos of them before I sell them. I hate to get rid of so much as the Market for Murano Art Glass has plummeted in price, since I aquired it.

    This PW has 3 different pastel colored Zanfirico style ribbons with controlled bubbles between them. Also, as they usually do, it has a lot of gold adventure in it. It is 3" wide, 2" tall, & 2 1/2" shaved and polished off pontil. It's actually pretty heavy, over a pound and a half of beautiful Italian Art Glass.

      Hey, antiquerose, thanks for your delightful comments! If I could, I would, but I wouldn't want to hurt you! Besides, I've had surgery in both my shoulders and might need a replacement in my R prominent one. For a 56 year old man, I throw like a 5-year old girl. LOL!
      You could buy one of these on eBay for $50-60, ten years ago. Now I see them go for $10-25. Unless you have a master signed or number documented Murano Art Glass piece, people shy away, as, I think they do not trust that it is real, authentic Murano. The Chinese and other Venetian copycat producers have also help by flooding the market with this crud. I have been collecting long enough and still maintain a 100% Feedback rating on eBay, it helps me sell a little more when I do. But it is really tragic how the prices have plummeted for more common Murano Art Glass. The Mid-century pieces do bring more value, but people are still leary!

      LOL.....Same boat here. Both Rototor Cuffs done here also a few years ago, so I throw like a Girl too. But I am a Girl !!!!!

      Ya, your right about prices. I Never do Ebay at all...... as I hate the bidding war thing. My heart can't take it. LOL

      Can you throw 1082 km ?? Even IF *Girlie* throw......LOL

      LOL.... My right shoulder, and this was 12 years ago, was totally misdiagnosed and the surgeon screwed up the surgery and I was in even more pain!
      I had to have my wife rush me to ER and they did an MRI. Found out I had a torn rotator cuff, a muscle/bone inpingment, and my labrum was 1/2 torn away. All from what my second doc, who my wife insisted I see immediately or she was suing, said was an inherited deformity. Lucky me! I was gone from work for 4 months. Luckily, my wife's family Ortho doc is a great doc/surgeon. He just received Sanford's Doctor of the Year Award. Did my knees too. I am a mess. Too many maladies to even try and explain. Been on disability for over 12 years. I hate it. I'm in pain constantly. I have been on OC narcotics for that long, too and it's the ONLY thing that helps. Doesn't take it all away, but you have to learn to live with it......
