Large Art Glass Fish

Post by mikelv85 on February 15th 2014, 10:30 am

Picked this interesting art glass fish up yesterday but not sure of the the maker or age.It's 15 1/2" tall. The body is hollow and open at the mouth. It could be Italian or Czech Republic from what I've seen online. Does anyone have any info ?? Thanks, -Mike-

Looks like Murano Glass to me, maybe Formia?

Hi Redware,
Thanks for the reply. I haven't seen anything quite like it online. Most pieces don't use white glass as much as this one. I had a person who collects Italian art glass tell me he believes it's Chinese because the colors are wrong for Murano. I was thinking maybe Czech because they use white glass for the eyes and Murano doesn't. It's a mystery but I love it ! -Mike-

My first thought was Chinese. Is the base roughly ground rather than polished? That would also point to it being Chinese.

looks Chinese - T K Max to me. Looks to low quality to be Czech although maybe picture is low res.

Not seen anything similar Czech either
