Seguso Vetri d'Arte, Pinzoni pieces
« on: April 12, 2015, 02:17:10 PM »
I have the fabulous Marc Heiremans Seguso Vetri d'Arte book since Christmas, and as it goes -- once you know what to look out for :)

I managed to find two nice Mario Pinzoni pieces recently:

1. lovely sommerso vase, interestingly in a colour scheme which is not mentioned in the book (cranberry cased in Aquamarina, with a thin layer of green in beween). Stands a little over 16 cm tall.
Pictured (as a stoppered decanter) in the book on page 170, selective modellist 1966, pattern nr 13874.

(And I did a little digging through older threads, and made updates where the attributions were uncertain.)

2. Chunky sommerso bowl, water optic or "resina a corteccia" range, 17 cm diameter, designed by Mario Pinzoni around 1966.
The colour scheme is called "notte boreale" (dark grey covered in a thin layer of transparent dark blue, the whole covered in colourless glass), introduced in 1958 -- so by Flavio Poli ;)

Thanks, John.
You are probably right -- though my vase is a perfect shape and size match for the stoppered decanter nr 13874, as a vase it might have a different pattern number.

Here is a >> link to the two vases you mentioned, nr 14601.
Interesting that they seem to share the same pattern number...
(Unfortunately these -- among many other pieces in the colour-photograph catalogue section of the book -- are not found in the "selective modellist")

Do you think those prices are realistic?

Back to your piece Michael... if the inside of the neck has not been ground for a stopper to fit then I would assume it started life as a vase.

"Offered by Marc Heiremans" may add quite a bit to the prize I guess ;)
I have never seen any of those two models for sale, so they may be rare...
That said -- as far as I have seen, Pinzoni pieces don't seem to sell for as much as Poli pieces.

The inside of the neck of my vase is not ground, but when I bought it there was an ugly brass thing glued in, so I guess it was a lamp base once (or at least had been converted to one).
Luckily, it was rather easy to remove by soaking the piece in some chemicals.

A lamp base might be a different pattern number again... ;D

Well possible ;D
But as even in this phantastic 200,- Euro book only a part of the patterns is pictured, we may never know...
I have seen a few vases in this shape, though, so the only difference would be the glued-in metal thing; here is a red/amber one: >> Link
