Murano Sculptures!
« Reply #10 on: June 30, 2006, 10:31:43 PM »
Here's my most favorite sculpture.  The seller told me he is 100% certain that it is a Cenedese piece by Da Ros.  It is seriously  radioactive (hopefully not a health hazard).  It has a red generic foil Murano label, but no signature.  Somebody else out there in cyberspace (by way of Florida) thinks it's Gaspari for Salviati: http://www.trocadero.com/blackpanthergallery/items/497982/item497982store.html

Does anyone know for certain who made this piece?
Thanks,
Charles.

Murano Sculpture
« Reply #11 on: July 04, 2006, 03:04:19 PM »
I recently purchased this piece of Murano art scuplture at an auction.  The red portion has silver flecks in it.  Can someone help me to identify what I have.  I paid $45.00 for it but feel it is worth far more.  However I am new to the Murano world and only have a couple of pieces.  This forum seemed a good place to get accurate information.

Thanks,
Joyce

Ok, I hope this works.....to a site I posted a picture of the scupture.

CORRECTED SITE:

Hi Joyce. Welcome to the board. Your link won't let us in, it's a private album. I suggest you post your picture here http://glassgallery.yobunny.org.uk/. It was created for the message board AND start a new thread on the Murano board asking for ID help.

This thread was created for a general chat about Murano sculpture so you could edit your post on this thread as well to give a new link to the picture and change your question to say basically 'look what I found' or something similar. Hope this makes sense :!:

Charles I would say you piece certainly has all the looks of being Da Ros for Cenedese. I've not come across enough of Gaspari sculptural pieces to offer an opinion on that as an option.
