 :oNice, I hope you won it!  Anything that comes in that nice of a box is worth more that what it auctioned for.  It really adds to the piece with the box and paperwork.  I am very suprised that it went for that price and not wayyyyy higher.

I was examing some other pieces with Archimede Seguso signatures and they all pretty much look a like to me so I am wondering if it is by the same person, so chances are likely it was Seguso who signed.  I do not know 100% if in fact it was himself who signed his pieces.  I hope someone else knows for sure.

eJean:

Hard to know. It's not like his signature from the 50's or from the 60's.I   But it had changed between those dates. I believe that he signed his exhibition pieces, but not the production pieces.

I'd guess not his signature. I don't think it makes much difference , though.

Congratulations, Ejean9!!!! :hiclp:  So glad you won it as it should only go to a collector. I do think it is a real piece.  David is right it doesn't matter who actually signed the signature but what it is and all the contents with it is what is going to make it valuable.  Also, check out Fossilfy's label library and look at the signed Archimede Seguso egg.  The two signatures look similar to me.  Hey I don't blame you for snagging it at that great price!  I would have too.  It is certainly a fine example of his work.  I say great find!!! :thup:

That was a real find--congratulations. It must be very unusual to get the original box, old sticker, and even the pamphlet with such a fine piece. Enjoy!

Very impressive to get the full thing and I assume it will be in mint condition. :thup:

 I am interested in seeing the label as it looks a little different to the normal scalloped label. Any chance of loading it here when you get it?
Clean and Crisp a Murano twist.
Archimede tops my list.
