Ebay Decanters
« on: July 17, 2005, 03:21:53 PM »
Hi,
This seller has a number of decanters/stoppered bottles. On this particular listing the answer to my question as to whether there was a signature was "none". Did Venini mark all of their decanters? Who would be the makers of these?
Thanks,
Lenore

I would say from the overall look this is not Venini, just doesn't look tight enough in the quality of the work. Unfortunately can't check in my Venini bible at moment as lent it to a friend who I'm educating in Murano glass. Must be working as he's buying a few bits from me.

"Unfortunately can't check in my Venini bible"


Could you please share the name of your Venini bible? Is it a good resource book?

I'm afraid it's not a published book just 5 loose leaf folders i've put together over the years made up from old Venini catalogues and design books augmented with numerous copies from auction catalogues, published books articles etc. Currently runs to around 1,100  a4 pages in total and quite irreplaceable.

 :shock: Quite a light work for bedtime reading then?  :lol:

To be honest, would this be something worth publishing at some stage?  :idea:

Hi David
Ti be honest it has been compiled from so many sources that sorting copyrights out on it all would be a nightmare. I've also got similar for Archimede Seguso and Dino Martens and various other stuff so you can imagine the state of my study most of the time. To be honest I haven't the time or inclination to take on a task like publishing it all, but when I eventually pop my clogs i'll leave it all where it will be used and appreciated, but hopefully that won't be for a few more years yet.
