Could this be Venini??
« on: September 16, 2011, 11:19:43 AM »
Hi.
I tried getting this vase ID a couple of years ago without any luck. On researching another piece of glass I came across some Venini vase's which instead of having round coloured spots had square ones on a white background so the design looked very much like this piece.
The basket vase is 12" high and the handle hole is 5 1/2" in diameter weighs around 3 kilos.

Mmmh, I seem to remember we had this basket say two or three years ago, but I can´t recall
the result. I´ll try to find the topic...  :)

I think I may have cracked it. Although this is a plain one there are working details which match the coloured basket I have and the base is a complete match. http://www.fossilfly.com/Forums/showthread.php?t=485
 Would still be good to see if you agree.

Dear Scimiman,
Hi, I doubt it was Venini very much. There is a book by Anna Vennini Diaz de Santillana ,  Venini:Catalogue Raisonné. It attempts to catalogue the complete works. Check in there

Not Venini, I'm pretty sure, both by instinct and by looking through a couple of Venini books. I don't know the quality of the glass, but I'm not wild about the shape. It looks clunky to me, not like the Fratelli Toso piece in the link you supply. To my eye the FT piece curves gracefully round the handle, and narrow equally gracefully at the base. It flows, whereas your piece is more squat and less fluid. I've got a couple of Murano baskets and some Skrdlovice baskets too and this isn't close to any of them.

My guess would not Italian, perhaps Eastern European.
