These quirky characteristics are expected and common in Vintage Murano pieces of glass. What a special vessel this is! 2005 - The Reason I wrote this Guide below is to Help YOU Learn How to Recognize the Differences Between REAL MURANO GLASS and FAKE : DON'T BE FOOLED BY SELLERS USING QUESTIONABLE SALES TACTICS. HOW TO IDENTIFY FAKE MURANO GLASS. An important warning to buyers.Murano Glass is created in ONE PLACE ONLY - MURANO ITALY. Murano Glass is NOT made in other countries! You will see sellers of fake Murano glass (mostly made in China) writing ridiculous things about Murano glass being produced in other countries besides Italy. For example - an American Glass Artist studies with a famous Murano Glass Master in Murano, Italy, learning his techniques, color combinations and forms. Does he call his work Murano Glass? He made these pieces in America, not in Italy - so his work is American - from the United States. His work is NOT Murano. ===> Many of these sellers use the exact same photos over and over in their listings.
Obviously, these sellers are too lazy to photograph every item, they cannot have identical pieces to the photo/s they continue to post - so you will NOT receive the item/s in the photo/s. ===> You will almost certainly NOT receive the item in the photo/s. This is similar to BAIT and SWITCH schemes.
These sellers lure you in, making you think the item in the brilliant photo/s is the one you will be receiving. Remember that you will most probably NOT receive the actual item in the photo/s.
Please read the fine print (if there is any), which may, or may not, disclose (often in a deceptive way) that you will receive another, substitute item that is not the one photographed. Again, trying to fool you! ===> You may also see huge, staged (vibrant and gaudy) photos of these fake Murano items in their listings, and the photos may make them look far better than they do in real life. Plus - You will almost certainly NOT receive the item in the photos.===> Another ploy is to use fake Italian or Roman or Venetian or Murano names or phrases, to make you think these Chinese pieces are made in Italy. ===> In fact, some sellers even display photos/pictures of Murano Italy which they have stolen from legitimate books or legitimate websites. This is Blatant Plagiarism and meant to mislead you into thinking the items are from Italy. ===> Most of these sellers list these fake items under the category "ITALIAN GLASS". ===> They almost always include the word "MURANO" or "ITALIAN" or "VENETIAN" or "ITALY" in their Titles - trying to fool you. ===> You will also see some of these sellers offering multiples of the item listed - within the same listing. Please note that 5 of the same vases will almost certainly be those poorly made Chinese vessels - not Murano glass! A real Murano art glass item is one of a kind - not mass produced! ===> Some of these listings include a section about the history of Murano glass. Such blather is intended to make you think the item is from Italy when, in reality, it is not -- the item is usually made in China. Unfortunately, this practice shows that some sellers purposely choose to take advantage of buyers, by offering misrepresented items at prices that are, actually, too good to be true. ===> Did you ever notice that, and wonder why, so many of these questionable sellers are offering the exact same items?
These vessels and figurines are not from Italy! Murano artists do not make the same piece over and over - every piece would be unique, not alike. These mass-made, cheap, poor quality items are NOT made in Italy. ===> Some of these questionable sellers even print, or obtain Fake Murano labels / stickers that they then apply to these Made in China items.This practice is used to fool you. Deceptive sellers may claim that glass made in Asia, or other places, is real Murano glass. Murano glass is ONLY made in Murano Italy. If you see negative and neutral and withdrawn feedbacks with phrases like --- "lots of flaws "- "not from Italy" - "ugly item" - "defective" - "very poor quality" - "does not look at all like item in photo" - "has'Made in China' sticker" - "definitely not Murano" - "junky glass" - "inferior product" --- all these are more clues to BEWARE. Read the listings carefully and be aware of similarities in language and so-called rules in these listings of fake Murano glass. Please be aware that some deceptive sellers ask even higher prices for fake Murano glass. Be Careful --- Don't be duped by sellers who use highly questionable practices. Most "Murano" glass fruit sculptures apples, pears, lemons, bananas, grapes, etc. IT TAKES EXPERIENCE TO TELL THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN REAL MURANO ITEMS AND BAD REPRODUCTIONS. Real Murano Glass is Expertly Executed - with Fine Details, Superb Lines and Elegant Quality Glass. Pieces from China are often crudely made, lacking finesse, sometimes lopsided, and often have numerous noticeable flaws and gross imperfections. EVENTUALLY YOU SHOULD BE ABLE TO SEE THE GREAT DIFFERENCES BETWEEN THEM - EVEN IN PHOTOS.
If you are willing to invest the time to hold and carefully examine many, many items (both quality items and poorly made items) - you can eventually develop an instinctual sense of evaluation. With experience, you can learn how to discern the differences between high quality and low quality. Then, when you discover a high quality item - it will delight you.
