Cigar Set, can anyone ID the maker?
« on: October 30, 2010, 11:26:27 PM »
Have just received this gorgeous set, and would love to know who made it. Its a very heavy set, with the larger bowl being 15cms across bowl, and 1.4 kgs, middle size one, 10 cms high 1kg and the smaller one,8cms high, 500 gms.

Svazzo has a similar little vase here, which looks like my middle one, but I can't see the silver in his. http://www.trocadero.com/svazzo/items/977281/item977281store.html#item

Any help would be appreciated, thanks in advance, Sandy

Could you do individual pics of each piece and add here?

I am thinking non Murano at the moment...

Question to other members...something look wrong with this? Or just me being exhausted...

Hi Kane, will put new photos up, just very hard to get the true beauty of them. What do you think looks not quite right?  Cheers, Sandy.

More photos, this is the middle size one. They have controlled bubbles, then a layer of silver, which makes it very hard to take a photo. The thick clear glass casing is done in diagonal swirls.

Sorry sandy...my mind is blank...must be my growing disinterest in glass lately...they look fine...one bowl looks like it had a frosted base in the first pics...very odd to see a complete set though...

sandymae, I've been holding back answering because the pieces look like they could have been done by several companies. Archimede Seguso made some similar, as did AVeM. It can be difficult to tell after the label is removed. My first thought when I saw the pieces was A Seguso.

A Seguso was my first thought, too.  Definitely Murano.

Thanks Anita & David, :thup:
I also thought A. Seguso,  :X: they had only the glue residue on them from the label unfortunately. Not very often you see a complete set, so very lucky. :sun:
