Okay, this is not my usual thing...but...at $8, what could I do?
I haven't seen any Murano glass like this in an op shop for so long...back in the early 1990s, when I started collecting glass, it was fairly common. There used to be quite a bit in my collection, but I sold most pieces I had from 2014 onward.
This is a nice piece in great condition, still with the original "Made in Italy" label on the base.
Heavy & chunky, with a biomorphic, vaguely sea - shell inspired form, it measures around 15.5 cm wide across, & has a decor of autumnal hued canes & gold leaf inclusions on a white ground.
