Can anyone tell me about these lamps? The base is glass, just wondering if it may be Murano glass and also any idea on year? Thank you.
I think you're on the right track for 1950s Murano. Wow -- so beautiful. A professional appraisal seems in order; the pair might reach a couple thousand dollars.
Murano is highly collectible and sought after depending
on where you live. Here is a link to a consignment store and what their customers are selling there Murano lamps for.
I also think this is a Mid-Century Murano Table Lamp, I think from 1960s.
I found a Mid-Century Murano Table Lamp from Venini, 1960s
These table lamps look really as murano glass lamps, but read How to identify murano glass on this site:
I also think your lamps are from the 1960s.
Murano glass is very special and is only made in Venice, Italy.
"Now it is hopefully clear that Murano Glass can never be made in China, or anywhere else, besides Venice, Italy. The official consortium of Murano Glass companies established in Venice in 1985 requires that the production factory of every member company be based on Murano island, and does not accept as members companies (even Italian ones) that produce their art glass outside of Murano."
Murano pieces do not always have marks/signatures as many 'marks' were paper and these may no longer be on the piece.
I would not suggest looking at Murano items listed for sale/sold as most of the time you're only taking the word of a seller who may not be able to prove the piece is actually Murano glass.
There are legitimate shops that have authenticated pieces and these may be the only places to see Murano glass items.
Your lamps are beautiful but without finding some of the identifying marks listed on authentic sites you could not claim them to be Murano glass.
However, there are many beautiful pieces that look like the real thing so even if not Murano glass, enjoy your beautiful lamps.
