Heavy Glass Ashtray - blue/green/red

Post by heygarth54 on July 31st 2010, 2:42 pm

I recently purchased this very nice ashtray from a charity shop, to me it looks very modern. It is crystal clear glass with three oyster shaped segments,
each coloured seperately around each rim in red, blue, and green. Can anyone tell me the maker or year of manufacture. The base is polished with no marks of any description.
Sorry this is my first ever post on any type of discussion forum, I appear to have macked it up, I'll try better next time, as I have several pieces that I
could do with help in identifying.

Hey Garth, welcome to the forum you haven't mucked it up at all, although a picture of the base is needed.

Also I've seen one of these recently, maybe here...........I'll have a think - other members knew what it was I recall

This is what I was thinking of - is it the same?

There is much debate over whether these really are from Murano or somewhere else.

Maybe Romania is a possibility, a few years back i bought a pair of vases in this style from a charity shop, the manageress told me these were romanian back then and i know that she frequently goes there and brings items back to sell in the shop. Also I recently went to a summer fair where the same lady had a stall full of Romanian pottery and glass for sale.
Im thinking now maybe she is right.

Hi.  Just come across this post while researching a piece of glass I found a couple of months ago.  It's the same ashtray but has a label that reads MADE IN RUMANIA.  When I found it the label was very dirty and the seller had marked it down as a piece of Italian glass, but with careful cleaning I finally managed to make out what it said.  From what I've been able to find out so far it's probably from the 1970's or maybe 1960's (the spelling of RUMANIA became the more common ROMANIA in the 1970's).  It has a flat polished base (not as good as a Murano piece as it is not completely flat).  Overall not bad quality.  Does anyone know anything about Rumania glass (glassworks, designers?).  Thanks
