Uranium quilted receptacle - Salviati? Venetian ID?
« on: July 21, 2010, 10:14:50 AM »
I'm saying somewhat confidently that this is Italian.  :) Any idea of a maker?  I was thinking Salviati?

It's an odd little thing with aventurine (gold leaf?) quite thickly applied all over.

This is going to be sold on Ebay, hence the asking for identifcation in Market Place.  :hi:

It is gold leaf and I think the maker is Barovier - at least that is what my leafy piece was IDd as...

These Venetian glass pieces can be so tough. Both Salviati and Barovier used gold. They worked with each other in the early histories of the companies. To make it more difficult, Fratelli Toso was right in there with them. Then AVeM... and so on. Unless I can find the exact piece in a catalog, I just call them Venetian glass and don't try to take it any further. Your dish looks more like a Salviati piece to me in the square shape and the Bohemian-style applied glass. Saliviati had some glass with small amounts of uranium in the late 1900s, so we know it was used. (If I understand the history correctly, the Barovier brothers were the people who made the Salviati glass at this time. It gets confusing when histories run together.)

Thanks very much for the reply Anita.  Glass histories are so often like that, designers working for different places and taking their styles with them...no wonder we get confused.  :)  Thanks for the information about Barovier and Salviati, I didn't know they were so closely linked.   :-* :) :)
