You will see some Czechoslovakian pieces of glass that look similar and was competitively produced at the time but on closer examination cannot compare to the quality of this Murano glass.

What to really look for are the tri colored or multi colored pieces; these pieces seemingly fetch the higher prices because they are more difficult to find and less was made at the time.

Because of the clean streamline effect, colors, and shapes the younger collectors of today seem to love this glass and are avid collectors of it. Consequently, prices are constantly escalating and continue to climb for the unique and unusual pieces of this glass.
