Peter: SDV label
It could stand for Seguso Dalla Venezia & C. Srl. (1951-65)
Thanks, that seems very appropriate!
re L Nason
What a beautiful and fascinating label !!!!
And something of a mystery !!!
From Murano Magic it would seem that the only person this could refer to is Lino Nason "who operated a glass workshop on Muranop in the 1930's".
Very much a mystery it would appear! I would definitely think the style was c.1960, which is qualified by the Seguso variant, but do you have any idea how long Lino Nason was operating? This piece looks much later than the 1930s to me, although the label is quite worn. Just to confirm it does state 'Murano' above and 'Venezia' below so it is Muranese, not just Venetian.
From what I can work out on Italian [speaking] sites, he worked from the Barovier & Toso furnaces for 32 years (till 1962)?
I was also aware of the large Nason clan but apart from V.Nason their other pieces seem quite hold to find, Nason & Moretti
But if it's Leonardo who made it, I'll eat the clam! :lol:
Well done Anne and Peter on Javier's label – could still be a dealer label though.
