Yes, come to think of it, I'm pretty sure it was a Klimt poster I once had !

Here is the link to the piece you spotted which is similar to Pauls....on the far right...

http://www.artnet.com/artists/vittorio-zecchin/coupe-cornet-sur-pi%c3%a9douche-libellula-q72MA5fm01_uaIFkRarNsQ2

Interesting to read he only worked at MVM Cappellin for one year though so it makes it more difficult to know if a piece of MVM was designed by Zecchin or not. I think Paul's is a very good contender though . The picture above is so small it's difficult to tell , it might even be the same design.

As for my candlestick it's anyones guess, I guess . To find any signed MVM Cappellin piece is  exciting though ! Carlo Scarpa's work for MVM is highly prized ! It certainly has sent me on a journey of discovery and I really hope you can find an example of Zecchin's design Rosie . ;)

Thanks Mike,  yes although a small picture it is very like Paul's bowl.
I will look out for a piece of Zecchin's work, and if I find a piece, perhaps I can show it here to see if I can get you or Paul ( Hi Paul!! :)) to verify it for me??

I don't think Paul knows we are talking about him on this ancient thread of his , or perhaps he sold it to John and he doesn't want to talk about it ...but he did say he would keep it . ::)

Well if you do find a piece it's no good asking me !!

I'd still love to see it though  :)

reminds me of one of the Nigel Rees graffiti funnies..........be 'a lert' - your country needs 'lerts'.
sorry, hadn't responded as this ended up an embarrassing piece in my memory ----      should have taken jp's offer and flogged it to him and taken a lady away for the weekend - would have been more enjoyable than the glass ;).            Thinking I'd never part with anything, I hung on to this for a couple of years and then, sinking slowly in a morass of glass was forced to send it to auction - and it didn't make good money - so serves me right for trying to be clever. :'(
In the event I've dropped colleting all but U.K. material - but that's not to say I wouldn't buy another of these or similar should I see one at a boot sale - I'm a lot wiser now than I was then.                 
So, regret I can add nothing further - but would like to record my sincere thanks to Dirk for providing the answer in the first place. :)

Sorry to hear that Paul and thanks for dropping by ..... and I've gone and dragged it all back up again !  :'( ;)

Do you think yours was the same as in the link above ? It's difficult to tell because the pic. is so small plus the angle of the fandangle and there is no height info..

At least we can all look out for more examples now, thanks to your goodself & Dirk.  :D

Thanks Rose,

I've been reading all the Cappellin threads here on GMB and this is a site TxSilver found and it shows some examples of MVM Cappellin, Soffiati, in the same colour as the candlestick amounst a host of other superb Murano glass. 

If anyone hasn't seen it already then please click on this link below...thanks to TxSilver !

Wonderful sites Mike, thank you, and the best excuse I have had for a morning doing no housework I have had for a long time....and now,  having seen all that beautiful glass,  I will have to start upgrading my collection....sell to buy,  but sell a dozen to  buy one piece I think!!  :o
