That is a very nice sommerso, Anne. It looks like Flavio to me.

Phew! Thanks Anita, :kissy:  the one on AM was exactly the same colours and I said smugly to himself, "that's a Flavio Poli" and then seeing the signed Seguso one I was feeling a bit sheepish.  :-[

Well, Flavio designed for Seguso, so that would work. There is one thing that bothers me about the bottle on eBay. Good sommerso was rarely signed back in the day. It may be because it would reflect and take away from the clean lines. Poli pieces were often executed by Archimede Seguso for Seguso. I've seen some pieces that were made both at Seguso and A. Seguso, so maybe Archimede retained some of the designs when he started his own company.

Ahhh right, that makes things clearer. I'm a Murano noobie! (You can tell!!!)

Oh, and the original duck on this topic reminds me of one we had on the board a while back but I can't recall it having feet, but it was nicknamed the sad duck due to its hangdog look. I can't find the earlier topic though...  :-\

There's a good one by Venini  :-[ at http://www.ebay.com/itm/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=310341952881#ht_3530wt_1048. I wish we could see the signature better. It looks to be of the contemporary form, being written around the edge. The words look like Venini Murano Italia to me. These were on some of the earlier things, but not written like this. Can anyone see the signature better?

I do wish sellers wouldn't put sig pics on an angle like that - makes it so hard to see it properly, even with the bigger pics.  :cry:

I found this very similar duck on a previous thread Anne:

Thanks Rosie, that's another one then. :thup: The one I recall wasn't a neodymium duck...

The way the neodymium duck's bill attaches makes me think of Mexico, but I haven't seen them work with neodymium there, though they might have. We can probably say that we have one of those abundant generic form ducks. These are the kind that drive one crazy trying to figure out who did them.

Hi Anita,  :hi:  The thread I just gave to Tina's duck is the duck I mentioned I had seen earlier without a signature:

I saw this duck for sale a few months ago....I didn't think it was 'signed' then.
Maybe this is one to watch?????????? >:D

I actually thought I had seen it for sale,  but it was Tina's question  here on the GMB.  I just remember vividly, that it wasn't signed.

How strange that the one on eBay has what appears to be a fresh, well defined signature, and this one hasn't?
How can we possibly explain that I wonder???
