Murano 101: Murano Labels!!!
« on: June 22, 2005, 02:20:44 AM »
Thought I would make a new topic just for labels, that way we dont have to look around into other topics for references to them... I would like for everyone to participate in this and maybe explain where the label was from, if you have reference to it (year, book, glasshouse), and anything else you think appropriate.
Lets try and have clear photos of intact labels if possible, so everything is readable and we dont get confused. I will post some labels, but hope we get more people to participate, like on the "Favorite Murano Piece" theard!
We can make this a Sticky topic if you guys want. Would like the feedback.
Thanks again!
Javier

UPDATE: Label images can be uploaded to the special album for thisd thread on Glass Gallery:

Javier,  Without looking through the summerhouse of horrors, here's the only sticker I can find.

You can blame Ray for this one, it was his first.   :wink:  :D

PS:  Sorry I have no idea about Murano stickers, I think I need a bit of help.   :(

These are the ones I have at this time. I just can't seem to get closer without the picture getting blurry so I had to take them farther out, I hope their ok. The first one is from a Ribbon Canne decanter, the second is from a Cenedese Sommerso decanter and the last one is from Vilca, a fairly new piece with the designers name attached.

Hi Max,
I have those 2 labels on a few pieces, pretty much intact, so I will post them in a bit. Have to find the pieces first.

... and Cathy, Thanks for the pics!

Venini Label

Here is a Venini label. Clear plastic with black print. And, a pic of the piece. Wish we had saved the pics we had of some other labels we had.

I have a big photo library of labels and signatures. Let me know what you want to see and if I have it, I'll post a picture.

It is true that most of the labels one sees are "generic" import labels. They can help pin down era of production, but rarely manufacturer.

Here's the most common of the Archemede Seguso "Made in Italy" labels
and the Seguso label it was most commonly used in conjunction with.
Date from early 1960's through the mid 1970's.
