    I found these three pieces today at a garage sale. The people I believe is Murano but I'm unsure. And I believe the fish thing is a large desk paperweight. The signature is on the fish paperweight .Any help would be great thank you.

    I see two different signatures? What is the arte '80 piece? Looks like a plain block. Is it the base for the two figures?

    Pic 2 & 3 go together and 1,4,5,6 go together I don't think the base is the right one for the glass statue they had one other base but I don't get it

    Those people probably defiantly came on a base originally. So it might be a challenge to sell without the base. They are well done and hard to make. It was made by hand no mold. The square paperweight is nice. Looks like it was ground a polished square. Not to many of the square ones around. If you are going to ebay I would probably ask about $80 for each. The block by itself probably not going to be worth anything. The paperweight will probably sell first. I think Vetri as a glasshouse is still in business. Do you have a specific question? The pics are a little hard to see.

    Okay makes sense now. It was the plain block (base) that was throwing me off. I guess you grabbed the base or bought the base thinking it goes with the "embracing couple" figure? I would go back tomorrow and see if the other base you mentioned goes the figure you have, unless you already checked it today. I agree with dumpsterdiver on everything he said. What are the dimensions of that block aquarium?

    After looking on the Internet a little bit I did find similar ones of the embracing couple. Unfortunately I can't go back to get the other base because it was only a one-day garage sale.lesson learned I should've grabbed it when I had the chance it was a round base and from what I seen on the Internet that's the one that should go with them. But you answered my question I'll put it on eBay with the square block and embracing couple as one lot and the other one separately and see what happens. Thanks for the replies. P.S can anyone make out the name on the paperweight I see (rossir rossic) the measurements are 5 1/2 wide by 7 1/2 tall.

    I think it's just "Rossi".

    One day sale or not. I would be knocking on their door if they had the missing piece that goes with something I purchased from them the day before. But that's just me. They either threw it in the trash, donated it or put it back in a box after the sale, one of the three.

    I agree I would be too the only problem is it was at a Elklodge parking lot where a bunch of people got together to do a yard sale. And the other pieces just like the square one but round with the same stickers.
