I just wanted so show off my new fish. This guy is a real monster in size: 7 inches tall, 10.5 inches long, and over 2 inches thick.
Here is what I found out about this company from doing a google search (from www.glassyeye.com
The company would appear to date from c.1967 when started by Vincenzo Nason as VNC, who is known to have trained at Venini, right up until c.2000 – it is believed they are no longer operating. Originally traded as VNC and Veritable Opaline until 1989, thereafter V.Nason & C.
The 'Veritable Opaline' glass were often elegant, classically shaped vases. One feature that appears to predominate is the bases, which are milky white but when backlit show as amber.
Glass by V.Nason was known for using aventurine. This process involved rolling the molten glass into copper flakes and Nason commonly used 'black' glass. This glass also has a very light clear 'casing' so the copper would always appear to be on the surface, and the surface feels lightly textured.
V.Nason also produced a wide variety of animal sculptures, from which a variety of effects was often used; sommerso and pulegosa for example. These sculptures carried various labels with the prominent Nason logo.http://www.vaselineglass.org/nasonfish.jpg
