A very good point Peter
As you know I am a great enthusiast of 50s - 70s Czech glass. I have a large collection some of which GMB has helped me to ID - especially Marcus.
not just being a bit of 1970s Czech
I am not just saying this, but in that post I meant to delete the 'not just'
All glass is created equal (ish) it's just the market that creates a false perception of what is more desirable - a money thing I think :roll:
My vase is beautiful what ever it's origin
Thanks for the reminder Peter
In one of my books 'Vetri Di Murano 1967' by C Bestetti (1900s to 1967 - mostly 50s & 60s), I don't get my exact shape (in fact I get the some extremely unusual shapes!). I do get some good sommerso combination indicators. Seguso Vetri d'Arte favoured green/yellow & green/blue combinations, there is some written info about these being 'earth or element colours' - there is a range called 'vasi in vetro verde terra e giallo' similar colours to my piece but different shape - designer not given for these (Poli?) the blue and purple vases are Poli, in fact he does like his primary colours across a broad range of companies in this book so I donâ€™t think itâ€™s him, but there are a fair few other designers working at this time for Seguso (1940â€™s â€“ 70s).
Archimede Seguso seems to favour matt pink, corroded glass and clear glass forms with veins in this book. I think when he formed his own company in 1947 he was much more experimental than Seguso Vetri d'Arte. I am sure that much Seguso Vetri d'Arte of the 60s is wrongly attributed to him, I will concede his company made the less high art pieces you tend to get in books. He had a nice range in bowls with lobed sides and a lot of aventurine, but you don't see a lot of sommerso.
Ref my vase being by Archimede Seguso while at Seguso Vetri d'Arte, my feelings are the form is too modern, most sites and sources (right or wrong attribution) have these type of forms starting around the mid 1950s - he had left by then.
Seguso Vetri d'Arte seem to come out favourite in my mind - that is if it is any of the Seguso factories or people, I mean the closet shape and colour combination I have found so far in my books is 'Luciano Gaspari' for 'Salviati' c1965 :roll: :shock:
Not much help I know, but I am somewhat of a novice here and learning all the time.
