Hi
I'm sure I'll be knocked over in the rush to confirm that this is modern Chinese!! Am I right ?



Thanks for looking

As you are probably aware glass really isn't my thing but there looks to be rather alot of wear on the base for it to be that modern - unless they are faking that too these days.

Glass people tend to be very religious so church I guess.  Cheeky

It looks Murano, hard to say for sure if Mandruzzato or not, perhaps inspired by as the yellow band is not as tight and neat as you might expect.

The Chinese wares that copy this kind of style are (at the moment) often very chunky and the bands of colour can be wide and not well controlled.

Would there be any clues on the base that it may be Chinese. There are a good few wear marks. When did all these Chinese imports start coming in to the UK??
Thanks for your help

No one detail is usually enough to make a judgement, you have to consider the whole object and all of the characteristics. Many bases on recent Chinese imports were left unpolished with a rough ground finish. The same is true of much studio glass... As it happens, the finish on many Chinese wares is getting more refined and the general quality may well slowly increase as time goes on.

The main flood of cheap Chinese glass exports seems to have arrived in the last decade but they have been exporting glass for at least the last hundred years (often called Peking glass here), paperweights have been arriving since the 1920s.

I really thinks it's Murano - the layer control isn't bad at all and the colours are good for Murano rather than Chinese. I'm the first to say Chinese as a rule

Plenty of Murano is not 'first 'quality.
