Pulegoso bowl with gold foil

(1/4) > >>

busterj:
Hello all,

To be honest, I'm not really sure this is Murano but it has many characteristics that point in that direction.

It stands 9 cm H and 11 cm W. Very thick walled and heavy for it's size. It has a ground pontal that shows a fair amount of age.

I can't say I have ever seen a piece of Murano glass with gold foil geometric shapes and a black figurative or abstract design on pulegoso technique. Although I have come learn that the little island of Murano is full of surprises!

Any help with this would be very much appreciated.

Thanks,

rob

rocco:
Rob, what a beautiful piece.
With that abstract decoration I thought of Beranek pulegoso from the 1940s first (like >> this one), but I have never seen a piece with gold by them, neither does the shape fit.

So rather Murano?

busterj:
Thanks for responding Michael.

I can see the similarities in the pulegoso technique and I was also thinking this piece could be from the 30's or 40's.

Something I noticed this morning while taking more photo's of it is that the glass that encases the pulegoso is a champagne coloured and not transparent with fine gold dust as I first thought.

It's a great little piece and I'm hoping that there is someone here who has some definite information on it.

Very nice collection you have Michael. Not at all jealous!

rocco:
Thanks for the kind words, Rob -- my small Murano collection can't compete with yours ;)
Sorry I can not be of more help regarding your nice bowl...

Michael

I would have to say that it reminds me more of Beranek than Italian also....  Likely 40's if it is.....
