The leaflet has no date that i can see, the only "time"reference i can see on it is in reference to "Gino and Antonio Seguso, the company has been among the top glass blowing enterprises of the world for over 50 years" ..dont know if that helps..the bowl is sooo stunning..i am blown away by how fab it is in real life !..I am wondering if it was a commissoned piece due to the box ? or perhaps a wedding gift long forgotton (sigh) i am finding it hard to see it as an "older" piece due to how new the whole package looks (bar a slight musty smell) ! I doubt this bowl was ever on display..

Hi:

This is a lovely piece of glass, simple, elegant, and yet completely opulent. The label, according to Ricke, 'Murano Glass' and Pina 'Archimede Seguso,' started to be used in the 1980's.

Congratulations!

David

Simple for me: Do I collect glass or boxes? I'd keep the box but the glass is the focus.  But I also know different people have different tastes.

Yes, David is correct.  According to Murano Magic Antonio (Gino's son) began working for the firm in 1985. 

Interesting stuff.

This is a little off topic but I ran into an interesting article earlier this year about Seguso Vetri d'Arte and Viro Seguso buying back the Seguso Vetri d'Arte just in time for SVA's 75th anniversary.   I thought I would share.   Reading about the Seguso family in Murano Magic reminded me of this article.

Here it is: http://www.tablewaretoday.com/Seguso-A.htm

That is gorgeous, elegant and understated, just how I like it. Particularly like the sticker in an indentation.

If you want to capture the gold effect (I am not asking btw) then you can photo it against a black background and it should show it up. Not necessary as it is perfect.
 
I agree with David put the box somewhere safe and dry and show the glass.

Well done great buy.
Clean and Crisp a Murano twist.
Archimede tops my list.
