Reticello Goblet
« on: November 25, 2010, 09:57:50 PM »
I would like to see what you think of this piece,
The reticello is beautiful, one of my favorite items.

I have spent many hours trying to identify a likely maker.
The closest I've got is a similar piece in the more classical goblet shape.

Do you think its of a similar age as the one on the Gardener & Barr site ?

Same old question I'm afraid, anyone have an idea of a rough ball park value.
Unfortunately I'm in a bit of a financial bind and will be selling some of my collection.

Many thanks as always everyone  :chky:

The link above goes to the site's front page. Click "Enter" and it will put up a second window. Select "Image Gallery", then mouse over the images until the ninth from the left and click on it to display details in the upper portion.

Nice items in that site, but shame about the site design - surely could have been better constructed with simpler access to required informaton.

And my immediate impression is that, yes, the goblets do seem to be of the same style and period. No idea of "value" though!

Martin, there is a goblet very similar to yours on pg 118 of Osborne's Venetian Glass of the 1890s: Salviati at Stanford University. The one in the book has thin white canes instead of reticello and clear glass instead of amber. The stem and shape are much the same. The color of your stem is one used by Salviati. I think your stem is Salviati of the same time period.

thanks for that Kev :hiclp:

Anita great information thank you, Salviati was always the most likely but you know how difficult is to pin down the identity  :hiclp:

thanks Tam i'v always loved it, I picked it up at an auction in Dorking for £32, there was a claret jug the same reticello as the goblet but went for too much for my pocket, shame.  :hiclp:

(...)I picked it up at an auction in Dorking for £32, (...)

Great deal!!!  :hiclp: 32 for such kind of reticello is really a good buy.
Imho this reticello is really nice, well streched and developed.
I like the stem a little less than cup and base, due to a little too thick, but if you want to use it it is better to have a stronger connection between the 3 parts.
Value: on new items I can tell you a retail value between the 200 and the 400 Euro in a good murano glass shop (not in "turist trap factories").
You can find similar reticello pieces for less, but this reticello is really well done and it is not a cheap commercial reticello.
If it is of actual production (last 10-20 years) the first name I can tell you is Giuliano Ballarin. He produces very complex reticello and filigree, but on a little too heavy bases and stems (imho).

thanks Alex, great information.
Do I take it you don't think its 19th century Salviati then ?

O no, it may be. Obviously an old Salviati would have another charm  :thup: !

Honestly it looks more an older piece than a contemporary.
For example some details between avoglio and stem look more of an old production than something made now...

I only gave you a "realistic" name in case it was made in the last 20 years (for some pieces I think very hard to tell a realiable age) and therefore I tried to quote a value/price for a contermporary (re)production.

Ciao. Alex
