so gradually the picture becomes clearer.


Or murkier? Alex reckons that Oscar is the father...  :?

Perhaps Leni is right; there is more than one Lucio?

Only point would be David that it is far more likely that a designer of the status of Bianconi would have worked with the master rather than the son and the time scale involved also makes this more likely and the works are well documented as being with Licio.

Alex is a local and in the trade, so if he says Oscar is the father you can take that as certain.

Now I have a "?". It may be that "Licio" isn't "Lucio" and Oscar is in between? It can be an answer.
I know a Zanetti's family friend and I'll ask him the family tree...
I'll update you tomorrow with the final answer...

Hi Guys
Many thanks for all your help. Here is a photo of a piece which is signed Zanetti Licio a serious piece of glass 13 inches high by 8 inches across and weighs 16lbs. I have seen this on a web site named CURL .

Jumped the gun there. Guess Alex is on the case about the Lucio vs Licio matter. Thanks Alex!

Hi Tony,

Yes, that link raised all the confusion in the first place... :shock:

Quote
The Zanetti Vetreria Artistica was founded in 1956 by the glassmaster Oscar Zanetti and his son Licio. The furnace quickly distinguished it self for the artistic quality of master Licio Zanetti's glass sculptures, and soon took its place among the most prestigious companies on Murano. In 1989 master Licio Zanetti stepped down in favor of his son Oscar, who had been working by his side since his youth.


Which infers that there could have been two Oscars :!: , or there's a mistake in this text!  :?

So it's possibly *son* Oscar, named after his grand-daddy Oscar!   :?

Hope Alex comes up with the facts for us!  Great to have an 'insider', isn't it?   :wink:
