Hi Sandy --
sure I have seem something like this on the net too. 

I was kinda wondering about that one base too -- as the base kinda looked (??) but then the glass seemed to look really nice, and well made so I was a bit (??).  Lord knows, I am not the greatest at ID'ing anything...so I thought would let others with more knowledge have a go at it.

Very Pretty set. Nice Blue color !! :thup: :thup:

Yeah I am ok...just mental and physical exhaustion from work. It has left me feeling flat to most things lately plus I haven't bought any glass in a few months. Maybe if I found a beautiful SVdA piece I would perk up! :sun:

 :hi: Hi everyone, I see what you mean about the smallest one, when I washed it, the base clears with hot water, and is crystal clear, but once dry just the base goes cloudy, maybe a reaction to something?

They are all definitely from the same set, no doubts about that, and are beautifully made.

Kane good to hear you're not  :srn: :sick:, maybe this is what you need.. :hug: :ghug: :dance: maybe  :st: will bring that special SVdA :24:  :rah:

  :thup: Very close, but mine you can't feel the ribs on the inside, as mine has the layer of green, with the controlled bubbles. Its identical to my base. Larger than mine in height.
Svazzo has a similar one on his site, which is the link on my first post.

So it's still :X: that it's by A Seguso, just with a few added bits!

The base is not a huge concern to me. Polishing the bases is a lengthy process. If the final round is omitted, the base will end up feeling smooth, but looking a bit frosty. I had one AVeM vase that had the final stage omitted, so it did the same thing as yours, sandymae. The AVeM vase was good quality. I guess someone just got in a hurry to get it in the box. Maybe they had a rush order. Never can tell. I've seen a couple of other AVeM pieces that had frosty bottoms. This did make me wonder if the vessel might be AVeM, but I guess other companies could have the occasional frosty bottom.

I'll be honest my first thought was AVeM.

I never thought of AVeM, did do a search for AVeM vases, but couldn't find any, except for the tutti frutti pattern, nothing like this, with a heavy base and spiral ribs.
I've had some AVeM, but don't know anything about their other designs.
Has anyone a site I could take a look at for AVeM?  :huh:

I don't think there is any site for AVeM. They did a little bit of everything. They did much original work, but they often made things that looked like the work of other companies. (I guess this is true for most Murano companies, but is particularly true of AVeM, IMO.) There has to be other glass like yours online. It would be nice to find some with labels.
