    These are two heavy Blue and Purple bowls. One has a basket like shape with handles. I think these are vintage Murano

      I think your pieces are likely Chalet glass a type of "murano glass" made in Canada.
      Chalet glass is a particular brand of Murano glass.
      Glassblowers from Murano, Italy began making Chalet glass in Montreal around 1960. In 1963, a fire forced the Chalet glass makers to move to Ontario where it continued until they went out of buisiness in 1981.
      There are some great articles and photos on the web to learn a bit more..
      They are great pieces

      Thank you so much for the information, I did take a quick look at chalet glass and it does look like mine. And before i blow them out, i think i need to research them a little more. Thank you again
