Thanks to my Grandma I am now a Murano glass freak. My problem is I canít tell real from fake. I have been brousing eBay and there seems to be a lot of Murano. What should I look for other than the Murano sticker which can be forged? Is there a good book I can use as reference? Your help is greatly appreciated.

Hi. Welcome to the forum!
There are a lot of good books out there, just search the threads here, and you will see a recommended list of Murano books. There is a lot of good info on the web as well.
Unfortunately there is a LOT of fake Murano glass on ebay. Your best defense it to ask lots of questions; if its vintage glass, try to verify its identity independently, and also know your seller. There is nothing wrong in asking a seller where they purchased the glass that they are selling. Price also is an indicator. I have seen fake Venini vases bids start at 99 cents, and sold for $20. If the seller can't verify for you, consider purchasing elsewhere.
