i found this quote, "The various incarnations of the glassmaking arm of the Salviati firm are as follows: 1854-1866 Salviati Dott. Antonio fu Bartolomeo (indicating in the Venetian vernacular that Antonio was Bartolomeo's son); 1866-1872 Societa Anonima per azioni Salviati a Compagnia; 1872-1877 Venice and Murano Glass and Mosaic Company Limited (Salviati and Company); 1877-1895 Salviati Dott. Antonio; 1895-1919 Artisti Barovier. " @ http://www.encyclopedia.com/doc/1G1-91088119.html
(about 3/4 down the page)
the label actually says, "???S ARTISTIQUES - ?arovier & C? - MURANO" (don't know if that's clear in the pic). could the "artistiques" be an indication that this piece was originally imported to France (ie. artistiques=artisti)? if this is, indeed an Artisiti Barovier piece as opposed to a Barovier & Co piece would it be considered Salviati or Barovier? lastly, i assume this means my original thought on age was a bit off - so, this would have been made c. 1895-1919 rather than 1919-1936?
all the incarnations of the many companies can be so confusing
thanks again for your consideration and input
