Archimedes Seguso Vase
« on: October 18, 2009, 10:59:21 PM »
I promised David that I would do a little 'show and tell' on this vase I picked up a few months ago. I didn't plan to bring it here as I thought it was clear enough what it was.

I wasn't enamoured with this when I bought it but since I have had it in my display I just love it. There is hardly a time of the day I haven't admired it, it particularly looks good at night with the lamp next to it.

9 1/4" tall and about 1.5kgs (sorry about the mixed measurements)
Clean and Crisp a Murano twist.
Archimede tops my list.

Thanks, Ardy. Georgeous piece. I haven't seen gold used in a piece like that before. It's close in sprit to the Mstisov/Moser vase I posted last week. Is that a Cordonato Oro sawn in the background.

Yes David it is. It is the only piece of B&T I have and I bought it in a group purchase. It turns out that it might be a good buy as it wasn't the major part of the 3 bits in the group one of which was an A.Seguso vase, the most important was the large lamp I showed here.

The tragedy of all glass collecting is that they are NEVER finished. Sometimes I am chewing my arms off to buy a piece but it is beyond my $$$$$'s.

Still as the collection gets bigger I might trade up as an alternative to forking out! There again I'd hate to part with any of it.

The sickness grows and knows no bounds.

Ardy first off, what a great Seguso piece.  Never seen one like it.  Second of all, I understand the $$ thing and really wanting a piece for your collection.  Happens to me all the time.  I guess that is what the sickness does to us.  LOL!  It drives me nuts!

Anyway, great piece!!!!! :thup:

Ha ha...that is so true...my collection keeps getting bigger and bigger and the storge boxes of glass is getting out of hand...although i am starting to rationalise my collection and sticking to a few designers/makers...

That's if i can stick to that approach... ::)  :24:
