Murano Glass Vintage Fish Aquarium Block Paperweight

About the Item

Here is a beautiful 1950/60's Venetian glass fish aquarium block sculpture, made on the island of Murano, near Venice, Italy. Known factories that made these include Barbini, Cenedese, and AVEM. So far I haven't been able to identify which factory made this one. Still bears a very worn generic Murano label. Please note: the plastic stand is for display purposes only and is not included.
