Default Two options

1. made by an unknown small Murano glassproducer, made to sell in the stores close at the pier of Murano (souvenir)
2. made in China:

Im going with option2, the murrine are jumbled haphazardly together and the color scheme is modern.

I'll go with option 2 also. The cane bits remind me of a vase I saw when I was browsing a Chinese glass site last night. The handle looks quickly formed, which is often a hallmark of Chinese glass.

Horst, this is such good information. Zibo makes some things that can fool many people when they first start collecting. I have been trying to learn about Chinese items for a couple of years, but each time I learn them, they change the designs. They are quite smart at staying one step ahead of the glass collectors. (I wish there was a way to save pictures of all the catalogs, but there is so much that it would consume a hard drive pretty soon.)

The Chinese have been leaders in art throughout the centuries. I imagine it hurts many to see the art devalued by the high production companies. But there are a lot of people to feed and many others taking advantage of the circumstance to stock shelves with inexpensive merchandise. Unfortunately, much of it turns expensive when sold on eBay as something it isn't.
