LOL,

This will make your mouth water, if you play the video, in this link for a huge early Zecchin vase....

http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/roadshow/archive/201206A12.html

I bought the candlestick in a charity shop in Bristol for 1.25, so don't sell your collection !

We don't have many antique shops in Bristol ,`just a few, so I have to look in charity shops to find anything vintage !

I've just spent the morning drinking one cup of tea after another whilst searching yahoo.it  , the hoover has collected so much dust on it that I have to hoover the hoover before hoovering  ::)

I can't get the video to play Mike,  but the transcript is amazing.... and words fail me on the beautiful Zecchin Vase. My mouth is watering so much I don't need tea as well...but I'll have some anyway.  :D

You really did get a bargain,  worth the hunt for it,  but I doubt I would be that lucky!! :(

As an aside, "I've just spent the morning drinking one cup of tea after another whilst searching yahoo.it  , the hoover has collected so much dust on it that I have to hoover the hoover before hoovering!"

May I recomment the disposable fluffy dusters made by Pled9e*  to dust your Hoover...and they are great for dusting the glass with fiddly bits as well!

* OTHER BRANDS ARE AVAILABLE,  BUT THESE ARE THE BEST!!

Sorry you can't get the video to work Rosie, I wonder what type of software you need to run it ? Perhaps if you downloaded BBC iplayer (if you don't have it already ) it might work. The video really gives the scale of the vase , it looks huge, sat there between the two .

The candlestick was a lucky find , I thought it was modern as there is no wear to the base and I didn't see the signature until I got it home.  Then this whole world of 1920's soffiato suddenly materialised  :o

It seems that many of these designs were reproduced over decades , so I think a really good starting point in collecting this type of glass seems to be MVM Cappellin as it only existed for approx. a decade  1920's/30's. Plus the fact that they had great designers.  It's finding it at a reasonable price that is going to be the problem !

I will go and get some Pledge dusters ! Plus some Cilit Bang , lime & grime , for the glass I have that has calcium deposits ! ;D

Here are some MVM Cappellin fish !....plus some other examples on this link.

At least in grouping these links together in one thread it gives an idea of what to look for from a collecting angle with this company. I hope it helps anyone discovering it for the first time, as I did  :)
