Satin blue over opal vase with faint stripes
« on: June 10, 2019, 04:05:47 PM »
Thought Empoli when I bought this but no luck so far identifying it. It is 22cm tall with a satin finish and those almost ghostly vertical stripes, keep thinking I am missing something obvious!

Any ideas?

John

Could it be salviati?

It does not feel right for Salviati, if that makes any sense. Moretti was a possibility I did try and look into but could find nothing else with those stripes - they are quite deliberate, I think blown into a series of moulds to create the effect.

 :) Looking at the rim, where there are angles in the white, but not the blue, it appears to be that the white layer was moulded, then encased in blue?
I sometimes start pondering Japan as an origin for white-lined, retro-style pieces I can't attribute elsewhere.

My guess is the first mould is used on both gathers, first into a dip mould, something along these lines:

then blown into a second larger mould to give the finished shape.  Where the stripes are on my vase is where the blue ends up being a bit thinner.
