Christmas early - Huge Archimede Seguso Pillow Vase
« on: October 24, 2012, 05:39:32 AM »
Hi All I have not bought anything for some time  and was beginning to think I would not find any other good bits.

Sorry about the crappy photo's but I was too excited to do a proper job on this one.

I have been after a A.S. pillow vase for some time. Came across this one and grabbed it.

It is approx 30cm tall (12") x 27cm across (10 1/2")  weighs 5.5kg (12 lbs) and it is simply magnificent to me. No chips nibbles or anything. No label but they are very well-known to many of you here.

Christmas in October? Should be like this every year.
Clean and Crisp a Murano twist.
Archimede tops my list.

Thanks Flying Free - woke up this morning and still can't believe I have one of these. With the morning sun coming through the window the silver lights up!

Will post better photo's later.
