    It has been awhile since I have posted any lucky finds. here in Pennsylvania its kinda the off season for flea markets. They are indoors and usually only the same vendors rent to spots for the whole winter season, so pickings are slim.

    I was lucky to find this weekend the FORMIA vetri DI MURANO GLASS swan with a yellowish colored body actually at a consignment shop just around the corner from where I live. The lady had it and some other glass chucked on a shelf. I got the swan for $5! And it still have the original sticker on it!

    The final picture is where it ended up at on the hutch of the computer desk with 3 other pieces. I do not know the maker of the vase. The large piece is Lorraine glass, made in Canada. The smaller piece is Fostoria Heirloom.

      HI Alien

      The Swan is just so typical of early Formia Murano's work - nice find!
