Just Sharing!!! I got an ID
« on: September 07, 2005, 12:40:26 PM »
Hello Everyone,

I posted this piece on the glass board a while back, thinking is was Scandinavian. What a surprise to lean it's Fulvio Bianconi 1990. I purchased a Quittenbaum Auction Catalog and while thumbing through it, I spotted this piece. I was shocked, and very excited to see the piece. Anyway, just wanted to share it with all of you.

Hi Cathy
Any clues as to which manufacturer produced this piece if it's a Bianconi design as I'd like to print a copy for my folders.

Hi Paul,

Yes, the catalog says Venini.

Has it got a signature to the base either an acid etched mark, probably Venini, Murano, Italia, possibly very feint or an engraved Venini mark with a year along side.

Not that I can see. So I'm guessing your saying it's not? Here is the catalog pic. for you to take a look at and maybe give me your thoughts. Maybe I'm wrong. The size is the same as the one in the catalog pic. Don't know if that matters just thought I'd mention it.

Hi Cathy  :D  They do look pretty darned similar, don't they?!

It'd be a good idea to be 100% certain if you're going to sell though, I think the Bianconi family is quite litigious!  :shock: :shock:  :x

Don't worry Cathy
I'm not going to rain on your party, as though much Venini work is signed, unsigned pieces are still quite common, and I have a couple myself. I was merely hoping that it would be marked to help confirm a date for it.
I certainly think that what you have is right.

Cathy, they look very similar indeed. How about e-mailing a copy of your photo and the auction catalogue one to Venini and asking them for confirmation? They have proved helpful to other members of this board in providing such info. Just a thought. :)
