Help identify this piece
« on: January 31, 2008, 11:28:04 PM »
Can anyone tell me anything about this piece? I think it is Murano? No chips, no damage.
What would be the estimate appraisal value?
Thanks.

Interesting piece!  A close-up of the remains of the label would be good! 

But don't expect people here to give you a valuation.  They don't usually like doing that.

I would say probably. Label seems to be sort of ovoid with remnants of red, which is a good start for a Murano label. These sort of flattened spouty sommerso thingys are usually attributed to Falvio Poli, but I don't have anything to back that up. I do have a flattened sommerso vase with a label though.

Possibly a Drioli liquor bottle... They made lots of different shapes and colors.

What fun pieces - would the Drioli bottles be cork-stoppered or left open like carafes?

I'm not sure you'd get a stopper in Cristal's thingy; the hole is oval and angled

The layers look clean and the colors look very Seguso VA-like. I searched and found some similar vases. These vases were attributed to Flavio Poli for Seguso. There were differences, however. The vases I found had pulled rims that looped and attached to the sides. Like the rim, the handle of these vases were pulled, looped, and attached, rather than pierced as seems to be the case for the vase in this post.

Still... Looking at the layers and colors, I wouldn't be surprised if the vase in this post is Seguso, maybe Poli. To me, the vase looks carefully crafted and very pretty.

Now there are several heavy glassworks with similar shape (with the "hole") blown by Silvano Signoretto, the brother of the more famous Pino Signoretto. So this is my first suggestion, but in this piece I "feel" also something not familiar with his works. May be that it looks a little thinner and less "sculptural".

Sincerely

Drioli was the liqueur maker though I think? I wonder who made these bottle for them.

p.s. I have had some very nice ceramic figure bottles used by Drioli, but have never found the maker for these either....
