Italian Mandruzzato?? Can't find one the same or same colour
« on: September 17, 2016, 06:36:43 PM »
Hi, bought this thinking Murano but is a lot heavier than anything else I can find over 3kg and also 8 sided which I can't find either. The blue has a slight green tinge to it not so bright as others I have seen. Thanks in advance for any replies. Sue..

Hi!,

To be honest the weight should not be an issue because Mandruzzato's artworks are also heavy. They are made in solid glass rather than blown; the glass is blown in order to create the cavity only. However, I know that he signs all pieces in addition to a paper/sticker certificate.
Never forget more than 700 years of Italian Glass history, this is the secret!
Murano glass just for fun!

I have sold about 15 in this shape all sizes and colours I have never had one signed, I picked one up the weekend three colours then clear that's not signed either.

Great looking pieces of glass.

not my area and I fully admit ignorance, but as a suggestion     ............   if there seems something amiss when compared to related designs from Murano, then how about thinking Scandi  -  apparently similarly coloured and cut designs were produced by both Kosta and Nuutajarvi-Notsjo.
I know we all mostly just assume Murano, but there were others making related patterns.              Just a thought :)

It is usually only recent Mandruzzato production that is signed, not sure when that started but vases from the 70s and 80s are typically unmarked. The shape of this vase is not unusual, as I understand it the colours used changed over time along with the fashion.

A modern signed example.

Just my opinion, but out of courtesy I think one of the contributors to this thread - at least those who consider they know what they're talking about - which excludes me  -  should respond to the helpful comments from Jonas.          Whether Jonas is correct or not, politeness should dictate that his help is acknowledged.
My knowledge is very limited here, so some illumination wouldn't go amiss re the colour construction of these things.       Is it legit to describe all similar pieces from whatever origin  -  whether one submerged colour, or two  - as sommerso.                   In other words if we have simply clear casing over blue, does that qualify, or is it the case that two submerged colours are required in order to fit the bill?

If Stromberg I would expect it to be signed and a slightly different shape too.

Hello all,
I only put out that it is not only Italy and Mandruzzato who made this.
Asta made in many differnt colors and you will find several without sign, some of them only had labels, Strömbergshyttan.
Here is an other vase, Murano maybe not Mandruzzato.
I am a Murano collector, mainly old squared Aquariums, birds and fishes.
Kind regards
Jonas
