i.d. for illegible etching name please. = MVM Cappellin
« on: September 06, 2009, 07:34:02 PM »
Had a good haul at the bs this morning, and one seller made my buy both pieces in the first pic., because he thought they belonged together.  The smaller desert bowl is etched on the base  Rd. 681649/Stuart (underneath).    But it is the larger piece that has beaten me so far, because I am unable to read the engraved/etched wording, and don't think it's in Ivo's book.    Have tried to take a pic. but not easy, and am hoping someone can recognize the outline of the words.  Piece is remarkably delicate and fragile, and gives the most wonderful long lasting ring when 'flicked', and has a fantastic hum when wet.  Size is 15.75 (tall)  x  16 wide cms. -and has a very neatly broken pontil.   Am judging from other items on the stall that piece cud easily be pre 1940  -  and I did of course think the obvious when I saw the three delicate machine threaded rings  -  but can't see anything in Jackson's book.  All thoughts very gratefully received.  thanks    Paul S.

thanks Dirk  -  now that you say that, it certainly looks as tho you cud be correct, although not the sort of Murano style that I am used to seeing.   What sort of date wud yu put on the piece??   Paul s.

Yes, MVM Cappellin as Dirk says, date 1920s-1930s I'd think?

Thanks also for the pic of the Stuart piece as it matches my unmarked large green one so helps confirm that too. :)

hello Anne  -  and I shud of course have shown a pic. of the underside of the Stuart bowl, and mentioned also that the Rd. No. corresponds to a 1921 registration date.   Anyway, glad it helped you.    Cheers           Paul S.

thanks for your comments jp., also for help with the Stuart name.    The Murano piece is possibly almost my best find at a bs. (maybe the 'peach blow just beats it), and is extremely fragile  -  remarkable it has lasted so long - especially Sunday morning being on a blanket on the ground in with a load of pyrex, and doesn't even have so much as a flea bite.      Regret to say I don't sell any of my glass, but sometimes get the feeling that this collecting has the potential for divorce, so occasionally I slow down a little.   Of course shud I end up 'On Carey Street', I may have to think again.      Sincere thanks again to Dirk for his eagle eye and and knowledge in the first place.   Paul S.

you´re very welcome, Paul. sorry for my short reply - i was just about to
say good night to myself. this kind of glass isn´t anything i know much about
either, so i decided to better leave it with deciphering service.  ;)
perhaps one of you kind moderators could modify the title and move it to the
murano section? we´ll possibly be able to get a designer´s name there?
