Oriental figures, Pino Signoretto?
« on: March 27, 2010, 11:23:37 PM »
Saw these two figures today, they rang a Seguso bell so took a couple of snaps to try and id them.

Just realized the signature is Pino Signoretto and after comparing to some photos it is obvious they are not by Archimede Seguso. These figures are in clear glass with blue within the torsos and of course are signed.

Forgot to check the asking price. ::)

Here's an example of the signature: http://glassgallery.yobunny.org.uk/displayimage.php?album=102&pos=108

The signature looks like the real thing, John. There are some fakes out there, but I feel good about the one you showed. Looks just right. And the figurines look like the smaller type things he often made.

Thanks Anita, yes they are small, probably about 4 and 6 inches (10 & 15cm).

Will be back there later next week to hopefully sell them some of my unwanted bits and bobs.

I hope the price is right.

I think that your signature photo would be very good for the labels site. It is crisp and clear, without the glare that the other photo has. (I did the other photo, so I can criticize the poor quality of it.  :-[)
