latticino cup and saucer - Italian?
« on: March 20, 2007, 11:03:11 AM »
Mod: Moved from Glass forum as requested

Hi Glassies,
This is a latticino (is that the correct term?) cup and saucer. (unfortunately it has a crack in handle.)
None the less it is an amazing piece of work. Each space made with the  criss-cross pattern contains a control bubble. (minute - not much larger than a pin head.)
I just love the macro image of the closeup. I'd love to know suggestions on maker? Is it Italian? Is it 50's? Any information appreciated.
Thank you
Beryl

She did have a Salviati cup and saucer but the picture has gone from the thread.  The rest of the thread was a victim of that weekend where such a lot seemed to vanish.  The Salviati pieces seem to be enamelled, whereas this gorgeous cup and saucer seem to have the decoration within the glass.  I love it!  Cat

Hi Beryl, Cat and Sue, Sorry!  I meant to move the pic into my gallery from my website - I've deleted that months pics from my site now, so it is gone... but I still have the original pic on the computer, so I've put it into the Glass Gallery for posterity...

Here it is, but it doesn't look anything like Beryl's one!

Beryl, yours is wonderful work isn't it!  the detail in getting those bubbles in place must be so very precise.

But as to who or where.... sorry, I'm not expert enough for that.  :'(

It perhaps wouldn't hurt.  I would call those fine lines filigrana rather than zanfirico (which is usually twisted) or latticino, which is lacey twists of filigrana. 

I think   ::)

Beryl, if you want the thread moving to Murano just ask and a moderator will do it for you, to save you reposting it all again.  8)

Thank you all for the advice given. The 'filigrana' (fine threads) are definately within the glass.
Moderators, could this thread please be moved to the Murano board.
Thank you
Beryl
