    This sculpture is 13" high x 5" wide x 3" deep. The base is 3" square. It has a clear label that reads "Murano Glassware". It appears to be amethyst glass with white canes. Thrift shop find today. Weather is bad here today, but I was out of woodpecker cakes for my feeder so I had to go out. On the way back I stopped at a couple of thrift shops and found this and a really cool art glass bowl. As I mentioned before, I know nothing about Murano glass, so not sure what I have here. It is real purty, though. I can at least tell where the front is (second image) as the label is on that side of the base! ;0) It was really (REALLY) dirty, but I didn't want to immerse it in water so gave it a sponge bath. It still has a bit of grime on it. Maybe from a smoker's home...

      Gorgeous! Hard to believe it made it through the hands of thrift store workers without being damaged. Very nice find! :-)

      @Broochman - Thanks! Yeah, I was pretty surprised it survived, too. The gal at the checkout said she had been eyeing it, herself.

      @iggy - Thanks! I am pretty happy with it!

      i think its not a snake but a swirl freeblown, i think its of the maker of murano keynotes, its not a Dante Maretti,but the colors are rather well and dense, the base is rather well , its not a cheap base, i think this is rather good vintage

      @renedijkstra - Thanks for your comment! "Snakes" was a tongue in cheek comment. I appreciate your expertise on Murano glass! I should learn more about Italian glass, in general, but it is such a broad topic. Easier for me when it is labeled!
