David555 I love that little Venini - absolutely gorgeous! Is it pure white or is there a slightly pinky/violety tinge to it? And I like how the signature is still quite clear.

My own collecting has spluttered to a halt since I purchased my fazzoletto earlier in this thread... seems that it doesn't want company lol

Have a look at this auction which ended about a week or so ago:

Crazy what it went for! However I just checked through my picture archive (yes I'm a bit naughty and save fazzoletto pictures from the net...) and I have not seen one striped like this before - the stripes are not zanfirico or latticimo, but solid. What is this pattern called?

Hi

My little Venini is a grey with a reddish tinge through it - it has a dark grey piped rim - 4.5"

I kept this one but sold a similar one in grey with a bluish tinge a month back and got £70.00 making me a tiny profit - I was disappointed, as I thought it was an unusual 1950s Venini - but people do tend to go more for the striped and latticinio pieces, add aventurine and wooosh

That is a high price, but the colour combination of blue ands white stripes is very attractive

One point - I do think my bits are better designed with less complex ruffles and folds to the top - I am a bit of a fascist and like my fazzoletto to have only four points, just my taste

BTW - I have started a thread on Chance Glass Handkerchief Vases - I will be posting one of my own and asking people to post theirs - to be honest they are just fazzoletto vases but as not Murano have no place here

I like the Chance handkerchief vases. I thought about collecting them, but I've held off the urge for now, lol.

Just thought I'd share my latest piece which I picked up last night, the mother of faz's it stands 12" high and has a circumference of 31". Bought it as unsigned but it has Venini 3 line acid stamp to the base and rings like a bell. To say I'm chuffed would be an understatement.

My interest in these has been aroused by this thread. I hear all you collectors groaning LOL. Anyway having a look around ebay I find a seller in Italy who seems to have an awful lot of these. Are they authentic??

I think I know who you are talking about Pat.
I asked and told me they were all his grandfathers (if its the same person), but he keeps listing the same items over and over as if he had an endless supply. Seemed fishy to me.....

But on the topic of Fazzolettos going for little now a days on Ebay...
I was fortunate to get 2 little pink Venini pieces, 1 signed, 2 filigrana black and white pieces (think are actually old Martens pieces), and a very nice one in Zanfirico White which I thought was Salviati, but is actually signed Venini underneath, all for less than $135 combined! :D
Its a very good time for them I think!
