Thick bowl in amber white and pink
« on: February 21, 2010, 04:34:38 PM »
I have had this dish for many years now, but only searched to find out more about it today. I believe I found the designer. But my question is...is there a way to tell how rare, or desirable one is by the colors...or?
Thanks Pros'.

I'm afraid I can't add anymore to what you said, Antiquerose. The label looks like it might be a remnant of a generic sticker, so it may be difficult to attribute. The form and colors do make me think of Barbini. I also think of Fratelli Toso. It's a pretty bowl -- love the colors.

Thanks all. Yeah, the label was the red with silver, said something something glass over the top, and then just Murano in the middle. I found it this morning I'l try to find it again, while my batteries are charging.

With my Moderator hat on, I have moved the image of this bowl's label to here from another thread that aircooled has posted. I have also changed the title of this thread to be a little more specific.

Hi Aircooled:

The label could be this one http://glassgallery.yobunny.org.uk/displayimage.php?album=102&pos=87
which is a generic Murano label, that is a label that can't be attributed to a single company. If it were Barbini or Fratelli Toso it would at some point had one their labels on.

Are certain colours worth more than others? Perhaps, but colours are so personal. It's not a piece that you could attribute to a specific designer, imho, as many companies produced very similar pieces.

You could check completed sales on eBay for this style and colour. to get a sense of rarity and value on eBay. Also have a look at soem of the Internet sites that sell Murano to see if they have a similar piece. The prices will be much higher there.

I'll add that I don't intend to sound negative about the piece. I've got a few very similar pieces that I really enjoy. Part of the enjoyment is having a production piece of a functional object that has some real artistic appeal.

There's one which looks to be the same shape but with a white inside, in Judith Miller's book 20th Century Glass, which is attributed there to Tomasso Buzzi, c.1940. Might be an avenue to explore...?

Anne:

There are a couple of differences: the three folds in Buzzi's and the four in aircooled's, and the gold fold foll in Buzzi's and the amber casing in the other. I'd love to know why Miller thought this was by Buzzi. The gold foil is part of his style, but he's not known for his ashtrays. I still think it could be a by a number of makers and it would be impossible to pin down one.
