Help Please who made this Pink Filigrana and Ribbon Ewer
« on: March 24, 2007, 06:51:07 AM »
Hi All,

If possible I am looking for some help in Iding this Pink Filigrana and ribbon Ewer with aventurine and a ball and swirl foot. I have been told two different Ids the First said this was made by Venini circa 1930s. The second said, unknown maker circa 1950s. I am hoping that someone can shed some light on this. The handle is applied, it is 9.75 inches tall and unfortunately one side does have a chip missing that accounts for the uneven sides. Any help on this matter would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks
Bear :-)

If you put a gun to my head I would opt for Salviati, however the foot does look very similar to same Fratelli Toso pieces I've seen. I am pretty certain it's not Venini.

Hi Paul,

Thanks for the reply, I appreciate it and your input. Seems to me that the second opinion of 1950s unknown maker is more plausible, so I will go with that. Once Again

Thank You

Hi,
several people blow pieces like this. Very difficult to tell you one name. Looking at few details, shapes and expecially filigree, if I have to tell a name I would say Dino (or Rino? I'm not sure at 100%) Tagliapietra (obviously I'm not talking about Lino), a pretty good master glassmaker now retired, specialized in this kind of filigree works.

Sincerely

Alex
