Dresser Set???
« on: January 08, 2006, 01:41:25 AM »
I picked this set up today and wonder if anyone can tell me the maker. I think it's called a dresser or vanity set. I looked in my books but as usual, I'm confused as to who may have made it. The large bottle stands 7" tall with a dauber, the smaller bottle has a ground stopper and stands 5 1/2" tall and last, the little dish is 3"X4". All have polished pontils. Any information would be greatly appreciated.

Very pretty little set, I would think most likely made by Salviati and probably from the 1930's.

I hate to disagree with my friend Paul, but the 1930s filigrana pieces I've seen are thinner and lighte than this.  Furthermore, the eaerlier filigranas were not cased in clear.   I agree it could be Salviati (or Fratelli Toso, or many other companies), but I'd place it in the 1950s, when thicker glass was the norm and almost everything was cased in clear.
