      HI Doughbo1

      This is a very nice example of a Murano Fish in a typical diving pose mounted on a water effect base. The gold you refer to is known as tutto oro (Gold infused) where 24 carat gold foil in laid on a Marva (working table) and a plod of glass is rolled across it so the gold adheres to the glass. Then when the glass is blown and manipulated, the gold disintegrates giving you the dispersion effect.

      It's a great looking piece. Does it have a signature on any of the feet?

      Nice colors and size.

      In my opinion the base is indicative of a modern piece.
