Alexandrite big bird signed Zanetti L - ID = Licio Zanetti
« on: October 22, 2009, 06:08:29 PM »
Just showing a nice find by my son when we visited the local auction today.  I think its either a stork or a heron.  Some 14" high and heavy.  Its signed Zanetti L on the base and has its Murano label.   Zanetti L has featured on past threads, but a bit of googled info states that Licio Zanetti only signed his name in full on really important expensive pieces, and the rest of the time, like this piece, 'Zanetti L'.  Still a nice piece, and really interesting to see it changing colour.

Ooooh!  :mrgreen: That is one of the pretties Licio Z pieces I have seen. Love it! It may only have an L, but it is nicer than some I have seen that have the entire name.

I agree with Anita.  As I saw the photo I said 'Cor, that's nice!' outloud.  I love big bits of glass anyway and it's a great piece of neodymium.   :thup: :thup:

Thanks for your comments folks :D
Just a shame I took him with me to the auction ::) !  I had it down on my preview list as a "must have", but it would have found its way to him eventually :cry:  ;D
He absolutely loves it.

Wow!  That is fabulous Sue - thanks for showing :kissy:.  I've googled Tagliapietra and his work is simply amazing.
How tall is your piece and is it also dated?
