Any information on Bonora & C. available?
« on: July 23, 2013, 01:57:35 PM »
I can find very little online about Bonora & Co.  There are a couple of other labelled vases to see and the odd reference to an Aldo Bonora, does anyone have any info on the company?

Here is one of their vases, the label reads Vetri Molati Bonora & C. Murano Venezia.

May be it's a retailer's label, as that looks very Mandruzzto (sp) (and it's got a U layer)

Interesting Christine, the other vases are very 'Mandruzzato' in style too (yes it is a U layer).

Here's an atypical panelled sommerso vase in the green & amber variation. I believe they are made by a few Murano-based companies, but this one features a label I haven't seen before: Vetri Molati Bonora & C. I'm assuming this is a retailer's label, or does anyone have any further information on this company?

Snapped at Malvern Flea market today, but even half-price from the original 70 price tag it was too rich for me.

David - I have merged your post with John's earlier thread you linked to and set all post titles to follow the earlier thread.

And I have removed your link but I am also adding the link below to a website where another item with the same label can be seen - with a comment of similarity with a couple of Campanella pieces.
