Latticino Aventurine Cup Saucer Set
« on: March 21, 2010, 03:10:08 AM »
Hi,
I have this little cup with a saucer/bowl which I believe is Murano glass - trying to figure out who made it and or when they were made. Cup is 2 1/2" in height; saucer is 5" wide. I believe they are a set as the swirls line up. any help is great.

The pattern of the latticino is similar to that of a goblet on page 82 of Sheldon's Venetian Glass, Confections in Glass. The goblet was made by Salviati 1872-95. There's a good chance your bowl and underplate were also made by them.

I thought this set had some age to it but had no idea it could be that old. Thanks for the info, I have no books on this type of glass - I'll see what I can find.

Just discovered I left off Sheldon Barr's last name. It is a beautiful latticino pattern. The picture of the goblet in the book has to be studied to pick out the layout of the ribbons. I think it is one of the prettiest patterns. I am always reluctant to age these types of pieces, because some of them were made for many years or were later used again to create the classic look. The thickness -- or should I say thinness -- of your glass makes me feel that it is some of the older glass, so I agree with you.
