Karla, Welcome! The image is a little difficult to make out, but it could be Murano, possibly Fratelli Toso, or conversely Chalet Glass which is made in Canada. Both Mfrs have made similar items in the past

thanks for the info,
the pic was difficult to upload - wouldn't let me do a bigger pic.
this piece does not have any mfrs markings on it - does that make a difference?

The forum only accepts a certain sized image, I guess so they dont have to host such large images.
A lot of Murano glass is unmarked, either by design, or through time when labels fall off or are removed. Chalet glass is often unmarked also.
I cant comment on the value, as I can't make out the entire image....can you reduce the image size and repost?

So many companies make glass that looks like Murano. I was looking at this site yesterday: http://retroartglass.com/page/107e3/Home.html . There were a couple of companies I had never heard of that made pieces that looked like Chalet/Murano.

here is another pic -
it is sitting on a red towel - it is amber color- but you can see more ofthe
shape of it.
