Ermanno Nason embryo
« on: February 18, 2008, 03:35:16 PM »
Hello, I thought'd share some pics of this one.
It's a 1980'ies embryo by Ermanno Nason.

Many thanks for sharing it, Alexander.

I have tried to buy items by Ermanno Nason before, but the prices always rocket! However, I do believe he was the founder of the L.Nason firm, of which I have two pieces.

It was a lucky find some time ago - I found it here in Norway and thought it was a very unusual
piece. I didn't realise until much later it was by EN.
A similar piece is pictured in Sibylle Jargstorf's Paperweights book so when that came through the door
I finally was able to id it  :)

I have a ermanno nason cat, signed and dated(engraved on the bottom) Ermanno Nason Cenedese 1971 Murano.  I bought it at the factory in 1971, it is about 14 inches high and one of a kind.  Let me know if you would like to see a photo.

The cat is marvelous and I think people would enjoy seeing it. It wouldn't disturb the thread, IMO, since the embryo is already ID'ed.

I would also love to put the cat in the Murano Zoo. I saw a picture behind the scene and it is remarkable.

David E:

Ermano Toso worked for a variety of companies (Barovier & Toso, AVeM, Fratelli Ferro, and Cenedese) and eventually his own company, Vetreria Arte E. Nason. There are many Nasons but I don't know of an L. Nason.

Thanks for that David - I wasn't aware of his breadth of involvement - but I actually have two pieces with an L Nason label:

http://glassgallery.yobunny.org.uk/displayimage.php?pos=-1925
http://glassgallery.yobunny.org.uk/displayimage.php?pos=-3768

I agree that the bird is not what you would call an E. Nason classic, but perhaps this was a commercial operation, rather than artistic? The text I placed on the second link was what I had found on the 'net at that point, so it might have been superseded by now.

Might be just supposition, of course...

David E:

Thanks for the labels. I should have checked the label library before writing that post! I was taking my information from "Murano Magic" and "Heiremans "Murano Magic." I realised after writing the post that I had only looked at the Nason family tree and I know Nason is a very common name of Murano. I checked the net for your information that L. Nason was a combination of Lino Perone and Ermanno Nason. The info is still there at http://www.glassyeye.com/glasspages/italy-nason.html.  That site seems to have a fair number of connections to the GMB, btw. The information seems to come from the book on Ermanno Nason, one I don't have.

Once again, I've learned that it's not wise to say "never" as far as Murano companies go. They spring up in profusion, then change and melt away. I wonder if L. Nason was formed to create a lower end product as most of what Ermanno did for Cenedese and his own company was  high end stuff.

I appreciate for the clarification, David.

Ah, www.glassyeye.com is mine! So I am only regurgitating the data and it may be advisable if we could locate the original source, or other supporting data (other than that sourced from mine, which was sourced from... etc.) My original references may help here:

http://www.glassmessages.com/index.php/topic,1749.msg14632.html#msg14632

About a third-way down (worth doing a text search on the page). I don't think Paul comes onto the board anymore, but his input always appeared very sound.

I would also like that Ermanno Nason book...  :hb1:

The thought that it was a more commercialised operation, could have some credence.
