Murano 101: Murano Labels!!!
« Reply #70 on: October 08, 2005, 03:46:28 AM »
Hello Anne,
Personaly I do not know how I feel about it.
Where will the labels be put up? I thought if they were going to be saved they were going to be saved on this website, not another website.
I would need a bit more info on this, can you please explain where they are going?

Here's a label that came on a little bird I purchased recently at the Blue Mountain Antique show in Calgary (Oct 14-16 2005) I believe it's contemporary ( take it with a grain of salt, when I was a kid I believed the moon was made of cheese :)  )

Hi

I was going to post these in a separate 'my new buys' but think this thread is good and I can add as well as get help on Murano/Italian glass and attached labels

1) Clam form of good quality with controlled bubbles and fantastic gold foil under the surface - label is for 'G Hardy & Co' Venetian glass, but what is this 'Lido'

http://hometown.aol.co.uk/blackcatgla/images/lido2.jpg label

2) Another item that came with it, starfish in same colour with same bubbles and foil no label

http://hometown.aol.co.uk/blackcatgla/images/ven3.jpg
http://hometown.aol.co.uk/blackcatgla/images/ven4.jpg

3) Small subtle sommerso dish with green label that is worn, I read it as 'Genuine Venetian Glass - Hand Made - Made In Murano - Italy' is this a Seguso label

http://hometown.aol.co.uk/blackcatgla/images/ven1.jpg
http://hometown.aol.co.uk/blackcatgla/images/ven2.jpg label

4) Tall yellow/green vase with opalescent stem - simple square gold label 'Made in Italy'

http://hometown.aol.co.uk/blackcatgla/images/it1.jpg
http://hometown.aol.co.uk/blackcatgla/images/ven5.jpg label

Hope this helps people and I can get some confirmation

Hello David,
On piece #1, CathyG posted a similar label on page 1 of this topic, but it doesnt have the "Lido" on top. DenCill also posted a similar label on page 4, and Anne E.B. posted a good description of where it came from at the bottom of that page.
I think maybe "Lido" was for a particular maker that sold for George Hardy (importers?)?

The #3 piece has a common Venetian Glass label, not a Seguso label.

Thanks Javier

I thought the shape and colour were wrong for a Seguso label, will have a look at the pages you mention ref the G Hardy/Lido label

I think no 4 is a modern piece, but any idea if Murano? I have noticed a tendency as with my Moretti and some Nason not to put Murano on the 'label', the stemmed vase is of course not of that calibre.

I wonder if that square gold label is an importer label or a company one, if it was anything good I am sure the label would have the maker name on with logo etc.

On a separate note - I see KevH posted about a label, 'Vetro Artistico Veneziano - Made in Murano Italy' on page 1

Here is a whole thread with labels and lots of pictures of that glass maker (we actually are at an impasse as to whether it is a maker or importer)

murano sticker on gorgeous paperweight
« Reply #77 on: November 12, 2005, 06:21:31 PM »
I have this Murano paperweight with a label that has black on silver lettering and the prow design of a gondola. Reads: Made In Italy Murano Glass. It's a beautiful paperweight. The pink canes are especially vivid against the vibrant green glass. I have other Murano weights packed away in a box in a basement room that's going to be professionally decluttered in a week or so. Lots of boxes of books, posters, tools, etc. Can't wait to go through the two boxes that have paperweights. Anyway, here are images of the weight and its label.

Hi EstlinClichy
You have a Fratelli Toso paperweight!
The F and T are fused to make that logo.

prow of a gondola
« Reply #79 on: November 12, 2005, 10:24:23 PM »
Thanks so much for your reply Javier. It's a gorgeous paperweight. I'm pleased to know its a Fratelli & Toso. The logo (the fused F & T) IS supposed to look like the prow design on every gondola I saw in Venice, right?
