Seguso Vetri d'Arte ribbed vase
« on: April 07, 2022, 08:16:35 PM »
Ribbed vase made of opalescent glass cased in red, with dispersed silver foil and applied black rim.
Width appr. 25cm, base with engraved mark "Seguso v. d'arte".

I have this nice vase for some time now, and though there are quite a few pieces from this "range" sold online (they come in a huge variety of shapes) I wasn't able to find any more information regarding date or designer.
Unfortunately, they are not found in the Heiremans SVdA book either, but that covers mainly glass up to the early 1970s.

Some of the sellers online say late 20th century (which is what I think too), some say mid century and Flavio Poli.

What about the signature itself? Don't think there is an example like yours shown in the Heiremans book but then it only runs until 1973. The absence of these vases does suggest a later date.

Thanks, those are my thoughts, too.
I compared the signatures to the ones in the book, and no match.

Interesting that there seem to be quite a few found on the secondary market.


I will post another vase I would love to hear your expertise about ;)

Michael
