Scavo ?

Yup. But it might not be Cenedese. Other companies do it as well.

Thank you Laura ...just wanted to confirm as I'm not used to seeing scavo.
Did I mention Cenedese ?  :shock:  :D
Does the Cenedese name have soooo much cachet / kudos ? even in scavo ?  :roll:

Some people assume that any scavo is Cenedese, and some people assume that anyone asking about scavo assumes that they're also thinking Cenedese.  :?

Methinks I'm doing too much assuming.  :roll:

Well, I have to spend the day processing photos to put on my website tomorrow or later today (blatant ad).  So, I'll be even wiggier when my eyes glaze over from staring at the screen too long.

But as to your original question, I'd say that the most highly coveted scavo is that made by Alfredo Barbini for Cenedese, before he went off to start his own company in the 1950s.

Hello!
I have two pieces of Seguso that are also in the scavo technique. Both are signed and one even has a good portion of the shield like label. The color of yours is quite nice!

Lenore any chance of pictures of your Seguso scavo pieces as I'd love a peek at them. I've been trying to find one for ages without success.

Most pieces of Scavo I see on the market are from LaFiore in Majorca. They produce a full range of 'roman' replica shapes (real or imagined) and because their main outlets are on the holiday island the distribution or their products is very wide.

Hi,
Here are the pics of the Seguso scavo vases (I think I may have posted these before). They really are beautiful!

Ooooh thanks they really are special. I must try and track down a piece as it's long been a gap in my Seguso collection.

Update on my piece
I now have it in my greasy mits - phew !
It's lighter in color than it looks in that photo. I shall take some of my own & post them.
It also has an almost complete, dark blue and silver shield-shape  Cenedese label on the base (just some wear around the edges of it).
 :D  :D
