square bullicante bowl with silver inclusions
« on: February 26, 2010, 11:49:37 PM »
possibly no hope of getting this one identified but I thought I might try  ;D
yellow, square, very pretty effect with the controlled bubbles and silver.  It is 12cm diameter and has a flat polished base.
Is the silver called silver foil?
Any thoughts would be much appreciated.
many thanks

It looks like it has a label? Definitely one of the better ones. Does it have a milky outside layer? Pics on a white background will help. Check the UV to. :)

Hi:

I think you're right that it could be a number of Murano companies. Venini would be signed and in Seguso examples the bubbles tend to be rounder and in a very regular pattern.  I would guess that the silver flakes comes from mica.

thanks for looking David.
Re the bubbles, they are incredibly difficult to photograph because of the colour and the silver which is prolific.  However, they are in a definite swirl pattern radiating out from the base.  I see what you mean about the shape of them.  I have another amber bowl which has the same pattern of bubbles, but they are very small, neat and definitely round.  The bubbles on this one look like those on my Fratelli Toso bowl interestingly.  I wouldn't have thought to look had you not pointed it out.  Thanks  :)
