    This is my collection of Glass Bird Bowls. I expect they are Murano, and they have all been bought in Charity Shops. The purple one has bubbles in it. My favourite is the blue one. I like the blue colour!

      Adele the two orange are definitely Japanese, not Murano.
      I am not sure who made the other two and it's a good chance they are Murano.
      They are neato pieces; I love a glass swan!

      Thank you very much racer4four. I had no idea these swans were made in Japan! What is it that distinguishes them as Japanese?
    3. racer4four racer4four, 5 years ago
      Orange was rarely used by Murano glass artists during this period (still isn't).
      The bases of these Japanese glass pieces are generally fairly hastily finished -you may see a matte surface still with dips in it, or a moulded birdbath base.
      The other reason is: I have some of these with a Made in Japan sticker lol!

      Thanks Racer4four, that makes sense as the bases are quite basic, and even look a bit chipped! And they are very orange!
