Three Ducks! One with label.
« on: February 17, 2008, 10:50:49 PM »
Any help for these guys? The first two are smaller, but the gray one is about 14" tall. The gray one also has an internal bubble effect that I've seen in FM Konstglas and Murano Nason glass, but the sticker looks like it might be a newer one? Do you think the blue one and/or green one might be Seguso?

I'll take a stab at the second duck. It looks like a green and aventurine piece by Archimede Seguso. The colors are like the ones pictured on page 149 of Pina's Archimede Seguso book. It doesn't have the design, but I believe I have seen your design attributed to A. Seguso.

I don't know who did the first duck. It looks Seguso-ish, but I haven't seen these types of eyes before on Seguso. Ideas, anybody?

Thanks Anita! The white and green eye on the first duck had me wondering if it might be a newer one. For the *maybe* Seguso one, do you know if htey were normally sold in pairs? Lke one with bill pointing up, and one down? I think I have seen Seguso ducks like this.

Also, is there a name for that gray internal bubble effect? I have a strong affinity for it.

Oh, btw, I just bought the Archimede Seguso book. I'm excited for it to arrive!

I think the Green duck is Seguso.
The first I really do not know. I have 2 in different colors, all with gold and those same eyes.
One of them has a Toscany (shield shape) label on it.

Thanks Javier! I've seen that Toscany label around - Sometimes on nice looking glass, and sometimes on...Other. lol It would be nice to know which Murano firms they imported from.
