View Full Version : Signed Murano Bird?
01-28-2006, 10:37 PM
Hi again, Here is a cute little bird that I think is from Murano. There are three signitures to the base. I presume the first is a name, the second is the MRF and the third I think says Murano. Can anybody confirm this as I am just a begginer and don't recognise the signitures :confused: It's been bugging me for ages!
Cheers, Infract :)

I googled the name Franco Bettaro and found one associated with Zanetti. I don't know if he worked with them, but his name led to a page about their artisans. His name was not among the list of artists, so he must have been mentioned in some of the subsequent pages. Unfortunately, I don't read Italian.
I love having signed pieces :) Anita

Nice find Anita!
After taking Anitas suggestion, I googled it also, he came up in on the Abate Zanetti glass blowing school, in which one of the instructors worked under him at one point.
We have a thread about the school in the forum here:
the site is nicely laid out and full of information.
