LARGE MURANO URANIUM VASELINE DUCK
« on: May 29, 2010, 10:27:51 PM »
Hi all I have this large Murano uranium vaseline duck / swan it has a G. Hardy sticker on it, but I was wondering if anyone knows who made this sculpture. It looks very much like a Cenedese but I could be wrong. I have tested the piece under a UV black light and the whole thing lights up a strong bright green. The piece is 17.75" in length x 8" in height. Hope someone can shed some light on this. Thanks for looking.

Fisher.

I am in the same boat as you when it comes to this duck. I've seen them attributed to Cenedese and Seguso VdA, but I've not seen one with a label yet. I hope that someone knows.

Your mind was on the same track as mine. Galliano Ferro was my one of my guesses for the duck and the short-lived Aldo Bon Co. was another. We definitely need to see this design with a label.
