Quick question, did Tapio..........

(1/2) > >>

BJB:
.......... make fruit in the style of Ditchfield and just sign "Tapio"? I have seen an apple and a pear today like this and wondered if he did any glass like this when he worked at Venini in the late 70's early 80's.

haven't got a picture as I didn't buy them :D , just wondered in case I should have!

Never ever come across anything signed just Tapio. Almost all of his Venini work was initialed TW along with Venini and frequently a date year.
Some of his designs were also produced without an attribution.

BJB:
He didn't do fruit  then Paul? Have found this stand in an antique centre with alot of signed "studio" glass, from the 1980's and 1990's but I haven't heard of them ( not unusual for me though :shock: ) so I thought I would ask first rather than rush in as is my usual approach.

Some nice bits but after the Chism, I think it was who signed EVERYTHING, I am very wary of the stuff.

Miller St. '91 was on another piece, but haven't heard of them either :?

Hi Barbara

Looking through 'Designlasin hintakirja' and I don't see any fruit shapes by Wirkkala - Paul is right about his work at Venini although he did design a couple of birds for them in 1966.

My Designlasin is new and pretty extensive so these fruit would be in there (IMHO) if Wirkkala designed them - he is just so well known and documented.

I've been right through the Catalogue Raisonne covering 1921 to 1986 and drawn a blank so I would say 99% wrong for them.
