stunning Murano Sommerso glass box , brass hinges
« on: September 25, 2009, 12:29:40 PM »
Beautifully made, a glass box, (maybe for dressing table??)
Light blue glass, yellow sommerso, 2kg, rectangular, about 5 1/4 inches x 4 " tall x 3 1/2" deep.
Obviously Murano, maker suggestion anyone???
Brass surround and hinges, (may even be gold plated?)
Its similar to a perfume bottle of mine discussed here,

Anita suggested Seguso AV or Archimede Seguso, which seems quite likely for this one too.
All thoughts welcome,
Cheers
Andy

I think this dates to 50s 60s, but a possible maker is Mandruzatto !

Yes, I think you are correct Ardy.  It looks like a Mandruzatto piece to me.  The yellow in the piece tells me that it is an older pieces as well and not a newer piece.  If it were just clear instead of yellow then it would be a more modern piece.

Thanks tam bam  :clap: I think that seems about as likely as possible for this one.
Do you think my tall vase,
