On eBay there are many DISHONEST sellers offering many FAKE ITEMS INCLUDING FAKE MURANO JELLYFISH PAPERWEIGHTS with and without FAKE Murano LABELS and/or FAKE Murano TAGS.
These Jelly Fish Items are MADE in CHINA - They are NOT MADE in MURANO ITALY.
THESE FAKE ITEMS are NOT ITALIAN! They are MADE IN CHINA.
You will see lots of FAKE Jellyfish Paperweights/Sculptures offered on eBay in the ITALIAN GLASS CATEGORY with MURANO and/or ITALIAN in the TITLES - but most of these items are junky Chinese mass produced items.
In China they poorly copy glass from other countries and often attach FAKE Murano labels to DECEIVE You! This is immoral and unethical - yet it happens constantly! These FAKES are practically worthless! Do not fall for this OBVIOUS DECEPTION!
Use some common sense. If a supposed "Murano" item listed on eBay is cheap - there is not much of a chance that it is Genuine Murano Glass.
Authentic Murano Glass is expensive! It is not worthwhile for a seller to lose money every time he/she sells something expensive for pennies. These Jellyfish Paperweights are FAKE! They are Made in China - and are not Italian!
DISHONEST sellers will NOT tell you the TRUTH. They want to FOOL you to make you think their items are far more valuable than they are.
They PURPOSELY MISCATEGORIZE these New Chinese Pieces - placing them in the ITALIAN GLASS CATEGORY knowing full well that these items are NOT Italian and were made very recently in China. Beware of one LIE after another!
