Sommerso Bowl...Poli or Pinzoni???...
« on: May 21, 2011, 05:23:15 AM »
I bought this one from D&A when I bought the big as I was intrigued by the label and also to see the difference in this one with my Poli bowl of the same type (which I will post once I locate the box it is in). Gorgeous pale green/blue sommerso bowl in the water optic effect. The glass in places is 5cm thick and it weighs about 6kgs.

D&A have it down as either a draft by Poli or by Mario Pinzoni. My guess is that is actually Pinzoni and not Poli. The label is same shape as the SVdA label and it reads Sculture *something* Murano S.p.A, Made In Italy at the bottom. I can't make out the writing in the middle or the picture. There is a SAM in a box underneath this. Has anyone else seen this label before or have a piece with a similar label? Do you think it is a Pinzoni or a Poli piece?

Very impressive piece!
My best guess regarding the label would be "Sculture Artistiche Murano S.n.A"

You could be right rocco but it is S.p.A. If only I could read whats in the middle. Will need a bigger magnifying glass I think...Dimensions are 9.5cm high and 25.5cm in diameter...

I've had a huge one of these in clear glass (sans label), and still have a smaller oval-shaped one in cased blue with a common-or-garden Seguso label that's the same shield-shape as yours.

So I'd be interested in the designer too.  :)

I sold it before I had chance to photograph it. It arrived the day before a fair, and I sold it the first day there.

Great for business, terrible for posterity!  ;D

 :thud: LOL...oh well. I will try to locate the Poli one in the next week or 2. They are definitely different bowls after handling this one.
