Default Cristalleria Ann Primrose Murano collection d'arte

Does anyone know if this is a legitimate producer of Muran art or have any information.

Thanks

I wondered about this for a while until I noticed many Chinese "Murano" pieces with the label. I believe that all of the Primrose pieces are made in China. Certain Chinese provinces make glass that they call "Murano," meaning it resembles Murano. It is a ploy to work a keyword into the products they make. The Primrose "Murano" collection is just another example.

I have to add that many of the Primrose pieces are very nice, but they are still contemporary Chinese. There would be nothing wrong with them if they weren't posing as something they aren't.
