The vase in the photos resembles a draped body (to my eye). It contains 'gold' leaf sandwiched in layers of clear glass and has black trim for the lip and base, and also around the inside margins of the shaped handles. It is 14.5cm high by 10.5cm wide by 7.5cm deep.
John Hobbs, 'glassobsessed' on this board, has indicated in a private message that this item is in the 'Eugenio' range by Barovier and Toso. That's delightful, because I've found similar but larger items in that range on offer on an auction site for $5000 here
and exactly the same shape and size but in a different colour scheme for 450 euros ($630) here
. But profit is not my concern.
My question is the exact spelling of the range. Those two auction sites use 'Eugenio' and 'Eugeneo', respectively.
Lesley Jackson in 20th Century Factory Glass plumps for 'Eugeneo' as the spelling, giving a description on page 27 but no photos. On the other hand Leslie Pina is most variable. In her book Circa 50s Glass she has a 'Eugeneo' handled vase or jug on page 25 and a 'Eugenio' handled bowl or jug on page 30. (There is also an unnamed pitcher with the same handle shape on page 29, and the design of 'Eugeneo' in 1951 is reported in Appendix B.) However in her earlier book Fifties Glass, Leslie Pina refers to some 'Eugenia' table lamps on page 86. The common features seem to be the characteristically shaped handles and embedded metal particles.
Are there different ranges Eugeneo, Eugenio and Eugenia? If not, which is the correct spelling? I presume that one of those recent books on the Barovier family will be definitive.
