They are a really nice couple - I met them at the 1st Northern Glass Fair - they do some lovely stuff.   8)

Nope, it's not signed Lynne. I seem to recall some of the more expensive pieces were but I'm not absolutely certain.  I love the hephalump too :)

It drives me mad!

I KNOW that these small studio pieces are all going to be coming into the secondary market in the coming years, and we are all going to be scratching our heads over who made them.  Because a lot of the studio production is, whilst not identical, very very similar!

Why the heck can't they just SIGN the darn things???

Because then we may just as well be interested in ceramics, where most items carry a backstamp. No mystery, no research, "oooh it's Wedgwood, Spode, Dresden..... " ad infinitum.  ;D ;D

But if that was the case, then it wouldn't be as important for the big names to be signed.

For example, why should a signed Venini piece be worth so much more than an unsigned one?  Because of the guaranteed attribution.  Any attribution of an unsigned piece is no more than an educated guess.

 Hi Lynne,

Because of the guaranteed attribution.
imho, the first gives fulsome opportunities to Dremel Man, thus undermining any guarantee that the item is right.

I realise you are being specific to Venini, but operating in a field such as mine, where everything is unsigned, there is little need for educated guesswork, as huge swathes are documented.

I guess the major difference between glass and ceramics is the material. A backstamp on ceramics is not normally visible from the front surface, whereas the transparency of glass may mean that the signature can actually impact on the viewer, directly. Perhaps the reason why much glass comes with removeable labels.

Marcus
