Seguso Vetri 'd Arte Bird help
« on: January 25, 2011, 04:12:19 PM »
Hi all,
I am once again trying to find out more information on a bird with a SVdA label on the bottom.  The bird, I think, is rather old but I have yet been able to pin down any possible dates and the label is not helping much because I have yet to see a label by SVdA like this one.  If someone is able to help please let me know.  I would really appreciate it.

I have this picture of the same bird with a different label, not sure if it will help you any.

Thank you so very much, Muranosponge!!! :hiclp:  You don't know how happy you have made me this morning.  Wonderful news indeed!  Your label has narrowed down some dates for the birds. Your pic is A LOT of help to me.  I can't thank you enough for your response.  I really appreciate the help.  :rah:

P.S. - Do you still have your bird?

Your very welcome, glad I could be of some help.  No, I do not have the bird, only pictures. What were the dates you narrowed it down to?

I had TxSilver's help with this one.  She told me the label on your bird was from the late 1940's to 1960's.  I found ash specks in my bird so I would imagine it being very old.  My bird probably had the same label you have a pic of but was probably peeled off at some point in time.  I can't tell you enough how much I appreciate your help.

My guess is the label would be mid/late 40's to early/mid fifties. I am still mesmerised by that SVdA label tam bam. I have never seen it before and SVdA is all I look for! I would probably buy the label out right  :24:

Hi Kane_u_pain,

Funny thing is at the time of purchase I had no idea what the label looked like because the seller didn't post a pic of it.  The seller only focused on the bird itself and not the label and only described it as being SVdA.  When it arrived to my home is when I discovered I had never seen the label before.  I appreciate all the help.  I just wish I could find the other mates to the little bird now because he looks lonely sometimes :mus:.

Thanks sooooooooooo very much, Mike!!!!! Exciting news!!!!!! :hiclp:  I have a feeling it is going to be a brutal battle over the birds on Ebay.  The seller is right.  They are rare.  I just wonder how much the birds are really worth now?  I noticed that the birds on Ebay do not have a blue head like mine and have different SVdA labels than mine.  My bird appears to have a round SVdA label that I haven't seen before.  Hmmm......

Thanks again, Mike.  You have a good eye. :o
