the panel cut somerso ca 1965-1971 
the small latticino/millefiori vases ca 1977-1978



They are not signed but have labels. I do not think I have seen any objects from the 1960's that have been signed.

I have included some additional photos for you.

"When is Murano not Murano?"

Many thanks Ingela for clearing that up. I have e-mailed Marcolin to see if they can help further.

I received a positive response from Renate Marcolin of Marcolin Art Crystal, and have provided a link to this thread, so hopefully we may get some interesting feedback. Sadly, the company no longer has any catalogues.

Ingela,
My FM Ronneby Shark.
Clear over bright blue.It has a very dark amethyst,almost black,core.
Actual length of fish 23" long.
Height is 18" and approximately 16" wide.
Weighs a tonne!
Label bears the flag and reads:
'Genuine Handmade FM Art Crystal.Studio Line.Ronneby Sweden.'
Base is engraved 'B 783-400'
The base mark doesn't fit with the Marcolin size/colour system.
Could the B refer to Benito ? Just a thought...
I'm trying to establish a date for it as I'm hoping to sell.Best guess is 1980s?
 
 :)

Beautiful shark! Lovely colours!

'B 783-400'
I'm not quite sure why you think the base mark doesn't fit with the Marcolin
size/colour system?

The base mark is the one used by Marcolin, nothing unusual there.
I can confirm that B stands for Benito. The number of the model is 783.
The size is either in millimeter or centimeter.
400 millimeter (approx. 16"/40 centimeter).

The base on my shark is signed B-783-35.  (35 centimeter).

The label dates your shark to approx. 1980.

"Clear over bright blue.It has a very dark amethyst,almost black,core."

Here are a couple of other FM objects in these colours.....  :)

WOW to your stuff!!! :o And thank you so much for your help.The blue colour is just magnificent isn't it?!

Yes Ingela,I am a twit.I guess I should have said I was comparing to similar on the Marcolin Art Crystal website when talking of the colour/size system.The closest I could find to mine was a 14" head down shark or number B-783-35-12B. It seems to be a set of 2 letters and 3 numbers indicating design/size/colour rather than just the 1 letter/2 sets of numbers that is on mine.Nevertheless,it is same as yours so it obviously it corresponds beautifully  ;D

So,would it be safe to guess that Benito designed this item indicated by the prefix 'B'?

Again,Ingela,thank you so much for all your invaluable information;It's very much appreciated.

P.S. I love the Pufferfish!

As far as I know the colour codes are only used (in the catalogues and on the Marcolin website) for ordering purposes. So if it's B-783-35-12B on the website it would be signed
B-783-35 on the base of the object.

"So,would it be safe to guess that Benito designed this item indicated by the prefix 'B'?"
Yes!

Here's another blue/amethyst FM object, one of my favourites!  :)

Well, I have just spent the whole evening going through the whole of that site.......I want it all!!! Amazingly, I found the 'Dumbo' style elephant that I bought recently......there, I knew it was quality!!
I am still a bit sceptical about the pink laticino and the blue millefiori vases though.  I am never 100% happy with just a label....sorry! I like to see the engraved signature on the glass itself.  Has anyone been able to prove they are Marcolin?
Now I am off to investigate Granna Glass, 'cos I've got some of that too!!
