Who was Seguso Dalla Vetri
« on: March 27, 2011, 11:55:18 PM »
Looking at a couple of lamps on ebay.au and I thought they were A.S. until I looked closely at them. One has a label that says Seguso Dalla Vetri. Anyone know anything about this company?

Bev the owner of the lamp kindly sent me the photo's of the label and her lamp.

regards

I know Elio Raffaeli use to work for the company when he was 15 years old and trained under Mastreo Piero Scaramal.  The company made a lot of bowls and vessels with fish in them and a lot of people on Ebay misattribute the pieces to Barbini or Cenedese.  Here is a past thread and thanks to Anita she set the record straight.

It is actually Seguso Dalla Veneziana. We had a thread that had their fish ashtrays a year or two ago.

I was just doing an SDV label and realized it it Venezia and not Veneziana. I like that extra syllable for some reason.

Thanks for pointing out Tami's thread, Anne. I went from the first to the third message when I was reading, so missed Tami's. Sorry, Tami.

Hi kane - go for it if it interests you. I won't be bidding as it is not A.S., looks well made though.

Will have a good look through the local site to see what is there. I am getting a little picky, I am looking for better bits and prepared to spend more but less often.

I was going to post a message to you as there was a great piece of SVdA on design and arts.

Had a look at the ebay.au and none of the A.S. tempts me.

 There is a seal and a few birds all from same seller that look well made. No idea who made them but maybe Anita might want to have a look?

It didn't have bubbles though Ardy so I wont be bidding on it. Although it did go for $117 dollars. Thankfully I got the white one for $112...

Some of it is pretty boring but I have noticed a large increase in labeled pieces coming up for sale. Which is interesting.

Nothing on Design and Arts has tempted me for while. There is one or 2 listed at the moment that I might consider, but one doesn't have a label. I prefer to buy a few things at a time from D&A as it makes the shipping the worth while.
