    I found this and paid a hefty 0.50c for it. I am wondering are these mass produced? It has a large pontil, no other marks.

      Carmenisacat it's always a good idea to give a base shot also because even if it looks like nothing they can tell a lot.
      Just edit your post and add the photo and you might get an ID from someone here.
      BTW cute name!

      Thanks for the tip. I did that. I'd love to hear what folks think...it's kind of unattractive on the bottom hahaha. No signature or mark.

      The base tells a Chinese story on this one.
      Murano Glass is always perfectly finished, and if the base has been ground flat it is also beautifully polished.
      This quick matte finish is indicative of Chinese made, so something for you to look for now!
      The colour mix is also very Chinese with bright primary colours. They are still an attractive lass, and for 50c you can't go wrong!

      Thank you so so much. Good things to know...yes I have a Murano aquarium vase...I felt that this weight could not come close in terms of quality. A nice trinket though. :) I'll have to look at Murano bases and get an idea about those.
