Cool fish anyone confirm ID
« on: January 16, 2006, 10:37:43 PM »
At last I've actually got a new piece of glass arrived today, coincidentaly on my birthday, so whoopee.
I believe Giorgio Ferro for Avem from the 1950's, but anyone able to confirm that, really just bought it because I love it.

Thanks Della
Another year older and I hope wiser, I've certainly learned more about many different forms of glass over the last year, so here's to many more hic hic.

Hi again Paul...
On the fish, I almost bid on it myself.
I asked the seller where he got his information, but never got a reply.
I have a fish with the G.F. label, the one with the Roman head on it, but it doesnt have a disk underneath, and its really really fat, like one of those blow fish. It also has murrines inside. Actually I have 2, but only 1 with labels. The end of their tails have the same cut.

The seller got his ID from a museum in Sweden, I think it's sound though because the chopped off look to the tail seems to be a feature as do the applied black and white eyes, are the eyes on yours the same. The damage to the base he referred to is from manufacture and not a chip just where the base was applied.
By the way Javier did you see the red and black Seguso cat, I ended up buying it just because I didn't have anything in the red, but as usual paid more than I intended.

Hi Paul,
Sorry for the delay, here are the photos...

(http://www.svazzo.com/sitebuildercontent/sitebuilderpictures/.pond/fatfish.jpg.w300h199.jpg)

the one with vaseline glass has the G.F. label underneath. The other doesnt have one.... and this one too, looks like yours but no label either...

(http://www.svazzo.com/sitebuildercontent/sitebuilderpictures/.pond/flatfish.jpg.w300h156.jpg)

Actually, the ones with the base look like the Balboa fish too. Same cut mouth, disk, and tail. I wonder if they are all related...
As you can see they have both similarities and differences. The 2 above have little holes in for mouths, not cut. Looks like some one pushed a pin into the glass to make it. They do have the same eyes, but that could be just a standard? The tails are the same, but no bases, so I really dont know if they are from the same maker. Maybe we'll see one with a label soon.
Hope the pics help.
