Hi Della,

It is quite possible the 'weight was made much later as a piece of retro design, particularly as it might have some historical link to the past.

Concerning Vincenzo Nason
« Reply #21 on: January 21, 2006, 04:45:36 PM »
There are two (and probably more than two!) Vincenzo Nason in the history of Murano glass.

Vincenzo Nason (dead in 1948) opened his own company (Vincenzo Nason & C.) in 1934 and produced items with avventurina, blown in moulds, with a technique never used before in Murano, spotted with black, red, blue, or yellow glass.

For this reason I thought and wrote that the "One-kg weight" presspapier that I published in:

http://glass-in-venice.atspace.com/newentries/30-10-04/index.html

was made before the second world war, prob. in the 30's.

I'm sure that this presspapier has nothing to do with the Vincenzo Nason who opened the factory in 1967, and surely is not from the 70's (see please the interesting text by Vettore Zaniol "L'avventurina", printed in the catalogue "L'avventurina. L'oro di Murano", 2004, Venezia, pp. 7-35)

Note that sometime in Murano the companies put new paper label on old item


Because of I'm a serious antique dealer, I'm very happy to learn something new concerning this item, this company, and this paper label

Hi Aldo,

Thanks for your comments: obviously this needs investigating further as I don't believe Ivo Haanstra, author of Miller's Glass Fact File A-Z, is around to comment.

I would certainly like to read the article you mention – do you have a link or an area to download it?

I have since found the following after doing a search on Google, all pertaining to V.Nason:

http://www.cmog.org/index.asp?pageId=693
Shows a Vase by Carlo Nason (b. 1936)
Italy, Murano, Vincenzo Nason & C. Glassworks, designed about 1958
Blown, cased, and acid-etched

However, this would make Carlo only 22 when he made this.

http://davidesalvadore.com/info.html

The official site of Davide Salvadore, current Murano glassblower, it mentions:
1992 - Collaboration with the designer Carlo Nason of "Vincenzo Nason" on Murano. Note: there are many other links that report this same information. This must be considered the most reliable


http://www.muranonet.com/page.php?sid=a96c792cc744d5db4ca70f76179196aa&pageid=PAGTP007
Vincenzo Nason
Founded at 1923, nowadays the production of this factory is mainly based on two kind of designs: animals and figures, in Crystal glass or in colored glass. They also produce blown items (mostly vases) and pressed and cut items (ash-trays, paper-weights, etc.) that can be realized also for promotions. They are able to make important illumination systems for big architectural complexes.

This would appear to contradict everything else. But it does mention this in the present tense (as though the company were still producing), meaning it must be the V.Nason that recently closed down. The items mentioned all tally with pieces I own

This is a listing in a search engine and would appear to refer to a recent fair.

... this appears to be a modern address

Actually it was me that provided the link, but I think you've posted this in the wrong topic? :)
