Archimedes Seguso merlotto?
« on: April 08, 2014, 09:28:40 PM »
Dear Murano glass sleuths,  is this as I describe it?. full of mica/adventurine, fully ground pontil, what looks like Merlotto in the bottom part of the vase. Circa 8\9 inches tall. What say you all? Thanks. Andrew

Merletto means lace. Check it out on google images and you will see that this is a different technique. Meanwhile no idea what your glass is - a picture of the whole thing would help.

Ivo, they are there, have a look at these with the sun behind. I'll also post a similar style link.
 
Kind regards

Herewithe,  interestingly with a similar narrow side profile.

Here is the correct link

Pictures are more useful against a plain white or dark background, whichever shows the detail best

Does look similar to the antiquehelper one, doesn't it. I'd say, stick with it.

Looking through Leslie Pina's book on Archimede Seguso I would agree with Ivo. The book shows a couple of different uses or styles of merletto in both vases and bowls. There are some with merletto quite similar to yours (one is top page 64 if any one has the book), they are described as merletto frastagliata.

I think this is merletto. Correct me if I am wrong guys but wasn't merletto a style that A.S. would not divulge how he did it? I have never seen anything remotely like this that is not A.S. merletto - Not one of the most attractive items I have seen by him but very unusual. Still I would kill to have it in my collection.

Where did you pick it up? They are getting very hard to find unless you have several thousand to spend..
Clean and Crisp a Murano twist.
Archimede tops my list.
