As in the other one, this is clear cased and it looks very much like a recent piece of Krosno - heavy, well made, polished rim...

Kane, if you are adding as a reference, please give the source of the attribution. It is a fairly simple piece of glass. Why do you feel it is Seguso VA?

I found a bowl that looks a lot like yours but in topaz. It has a Seguso VA label and is from 1960. The one in the auction catalog is 17 cm in diameter and very thick walled, but looks like it is not cased -- hard to tell from the picture because I can't see the lower portion.

Where did you buy your bowl, Kane. Since your bowl is added for reference, it would be good to know a little bit more about it and the attribution.

Purchased from design & arts. I had the option of 2 bowls. One with a label but damaged, or this one which was perfect. I decided on this one since the other SVdA pieces I have in this colour combo are near perfect.

I also have another SVdA bowl with the same dimensions in a deep purple (looks black) with gold foil that has the SVdA label. Age approx mid 50's. My glass generally sticks to a theme. I hope this helps some more. I do believe it is geniune example.

I also forgot to add tx. I am becoming more familiar with these Poli pieces and the range of colour that he done on these even amazes me. Some with labels and without. Also done in varying sizes. I hope this can help clarify.

From the definitions I have read in regards to cased or sommerso pieces. They seem to over lap! Which can be confusing.

I wondered if it was Design&Arts. I always trust their attributions. Finding the same type bowl in a different color and with a label tells me your instincts were right. You bought a good piece. Thanks for the reference!

I know I probably should add more detail to my posts tx! Sometimes i just feel to rushed, especially at the moment.  >:(

Was Poli the absolute master of Sommerso? I have not seen anybody who does it better than him. Even A.Seguso seems to have learnt his Sommerso technique from Poli and several of his pieces are very similar to Poli.

Love the colour and the look of it Kane.
Clean and Crisp a Murano twist.
Archimede tops my list.
