New member needs help to Id a vase
« on: December 13, 2011, 08:33:21 PM »
I need help to identify the signer and maker?  It looks like Murano to me but it could be the last name of signer.  Thanks

Nice bottle. The last word is definitely Murano, but I am also having trouble reading the name.

Presumably your original photos are much larger.  See if you can reduce the to nearer 124.9KB before you post - particularly the signature.  My old eyes are having trouble with the small picture.

In case you are not sure how to get larger results from resizing - I suggest the following.  Make several copies of the original picture. Resize the fiirst copy and save the result.  Now check the size of the result.  If it is not fairly close to the 124.9KBb limit( say 100Kb or more) try resizing the next copy with a slightly higher %age if the photo became too small, or a slightyl lower %age if it remained too big, save and check.  Repeat until you achieve as good a result as you can.

What a nice bottle you have there!  Not sure of the signature either.  What does the texture feel like?  Velvet or does it have roughness (lack of better word at the moment) to it?

Interesting piece that I keep coming back to.  It looks very Murano-ish to me.  Is it actually a bottle? Has the neck and mouth been blown separately from the body of the bottle?  (A photo from above and off to the side would help.) It looks to me that it's almost like a an acid finish to it, corroso without  the pattern.

I don't recognize the name. Lovely piece, though.

Try looking up Ozeta.  Photos attached of my little vase.  My texture is definitely rough - rather like treated bronze.

I think you're right, Ross. That could me Cozeta on the bottom of the other piece. Checking the GMB for Cozeta, I found this thread. http://www.glassmessages.com/index.php?topic=14226.0   The link takes you to Duezeta, but nothing on their current site looks like this piece.  However, a Google search of Cozeta turned up a couple of what looked scavo pieces very similar to the one Ross shows.

You might try writing to Duezeta to see what they say about it.

I don't know if I'm way off base here, but to me the signature looked like C Leto, so I did a search for C Leto Glass and came up with a number of listings for a designer called Cleto Munari who works with glass and glass designers and other materials.  This is the company website www.cletomunari.com

and this pdf specifically shows some of the glassware produced (go to 7th page) http://www.cletomunari.com/pdf/cromatic-trasparancies.pdf

Might be worth investigating, I'm not sure!

Hmm.  Just found this 2009 post which shows the Cleto Munari signature - not a match unfortunately.  Seem to have barked up the wrong tree!
