Can someone tell me the age of this signed murano vase?

I've bought this I think nice Murano signed vase, is this a rare/old piece? and does someone knows the designer?

Gr,

Marcel

I do not know who designed your vase. From the colors, I would say the vase is fairly recent. It is made using an incalmo technique. I hope someone else has more information for you.

Hi:

The piece looks like it's based on the "Bolle" vessels designed by Tapio Wirkkala for Venini in 1966, which are still being produced. The originals would have the Venini label on them and an engraved signature line on the base. The label on your piece doesn't look like a Venini label. While not an Venini, it still takes a fair bit of skill to make an incalmo piece like this.


David

P.S. A late thought. I checked the Venini website, and the shape isn't on there. The link is http://www.venini.it/venini.html

don't take this to the bank, but I'm almost sure I saw 1 like this by Cenedese.
