Archimede Seguso Or Something Else???...
« on: June 18, 2011, 05:06:05 AM »
Bought this a little while ago and I can't find a similar example in my searches. I have seen 2 other vases like this piece, both were said to be Archimede Seguso. Just over 21cm tall and 9.5cm in dia. The glass is 2cm thick. Quite a heavy piece of glass. I thought I had seen this in one of my books but was wrong. It still has the glue residue from the label on the bottom but I can't quite make out if it is the scalloped edged. Lots of wear to the base. Archimede Seguso or not?

Your vase certainly has the AS look.  I'll take a look around also for you to see if I can find anything similar to it.

Thanks cathy and tam bam... ;D

I have run out of search terms on this as I just keep getting hits on the A.S opalescent spiral pieces...and it definitely has the A.S look to it and i think the dimensions are right.

Hi kane I am sure it is AS but I have seen similar attributed to SvdA (maybe Poli). I have a perfume bottle in the same candy twist/sommerso format with the AS label and a bottle in Alabastro. You can safely attribute it to AS and if you look on the US ebay/ italian/ seguso there is two for sale there at the moment, one with a false signature (I think) http://cgi.ebay.com/Archidmede-Seguso-Spiral-Art-Glass-Vase-Murano-signed-/310290408503?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item483ebfe437

Your label could have been the oval AS one.

Great find, great vase.

I hate you.
Clean and Crisp a Murano twist.
Archimede tops my list.

Thanks ardy for the confirmation, I was confident it would be an AS piece but needed confirmation.

Since you already hate me, I paid $27 for it and was the only bidder out of 183 views.  :ooh:
