ID help Murano Bullicante Aventurine Lamp Seguso?
« on: June 26, 2014, 10:27:15 PM »
Hello and thank you for the opportunity to ask if this is a Bullicante Aventurine 50s lamp designed by Archimede Seguso and made by Barovier & Toso in Murano.
Thank you for any info and pricing help. I want to be reasonable and not scare any potential buyers away. The only sticker on it is from Sally's Lamps & Shades in Long Beach California

Regarding these Murano glass lamps & I have some experience having sold approx 20 good ones over the years & not one of them could be positively attributed. Most U.S. final stage lamp manufacturers after WWII did not manufacture the glass components of their lamps…they subcontracted with glass manufacturers, some domestic, some foreign (imports), for glass parts & had them shipped for final assembly so identifying whom did what for whom is pretty much impossible since subcontracted job records were not kept by the vast majority of either glass manufacturers or final stage lamp manufacturers.

When it comes to Murano glass parts for lamps (and keep in mind 95% of the times just the glass was shipped not a complete lamp), it could be almost anyone...just throw out names, Seguso, Toso, Barbini, I could go on & on,  who designed & manfactured the glass parts for assembly so I would not even hazard a guess.

This may give you a better idea of what you are up against when it comes to attribution of glass used in lamps in many cases.

I was able to positively id this lamp base as it had the remains of a Seguso label on the base. I think they were both made with gold leaf or gold dust (polveri) rather than aventurine but it can be hard to be distinguish between them.

Looks identical except for height

Beautiful lamp it looks identical except for height I imagine. Mine is 19" tall and 7" diameter. It is interesting to me how different it looks, outside in daylight, inside turned off in daylight, inside turned on in daylight and turned on at night is spectacular
