Stunning blown goblet...perhaps Italian
« on: January 24, 2012, 09:42:25 AM »
Hi again all
I am sure i saw this piece on someones site quite some time ago but it fails me as to where. Any help would be great.
The glass has fine threads swirling round the body with small glass jewels interspersed. There is a pontil mark and signed  Bon 02
Many thanks
Norman

Just what it says - made by the Bon factory in Murano in 2002. Thank heaven for signatures!

Hi Ivo
Thank goodness for the signature Bon...yes. I had previously tried to google Bon Italian/murano glass but came with with nothing other than Bon Ton and Bon Aldo and further searches led nowhere.
But thank you alll the same.

Bon Aldo is daddy and Bon Bruno is son - not sure how the family relates nowadays. It may be a case of a bewildering array of cousins and nephews.
