Italian Opaline vase with export label
« on: September 12, 2007, 04:01:45 AM »
Mindful of my two pink ewers, see here, I found this similar vase recently, complete with its export label, which might help attribute all three.

As with the ewers, the stem is 8-rib and made from an identical opalescent glass, here termed opaline on the label.    Identical construction and similar thickness of glass.   Height 10½" (26.5cm).   Same glassmaker, perhaps, or same training / apprenticeship?

The foil and paper label is a map of the old world, including Antarctica, missing the Americas and New Zealand, over a ribbon, and is fully legible except for the central initials in a fancy script, and reads:-

HAND / OPALINE / LG (LE, LC ???) / MARCHIO DEPOSITATO / MADE IN ITALY

As this is a registered trade mark, this mark or label should be well known, but I can't find it anywhere.

I am posting this on the general glass board as Ivo suggested that the ewers might not be Murano.

Two threads to read up Bernard, which may be of some help:

There appears to be some similarity in the base of my Veritable Opaline vase, with your pink ewers - do they also exhibit the amber tinge when backlit?
