The only one that might have been produced at Seguso Vetri d'Arte, of which Flavio Poli was principle designer, is photo number 31. The rest are too "sloppy" to be produced by that company, whose trademark was near perfection. Please don't be offended by this comment - you're pieces are very pretty. However, the Poli pieces have extremely clean, pure lines and very architectural forms. They just don't look like your items.
I'm not at all offended by what you, or any others, have to say regarding my questions.
It's good to know the truth behind them.
Most of the 'ideas' I had regarding what I own comes from a lack of knowledge on my part.
As I've said elsewhere in here before, when it comes to glass, I knows what I likes but I don't really know anything about it.
I have quite a lot of books on 50's design that have the odd bit to do with glass, though nothing too specialist (my main area of collecting over the years has mostly been ceramics).
Saying that though, I have always thought that the 'Poli' pieces I have were lacking that certain 'something' I got from looking at genuine Poli pieces in those books, hence my original question.
I'm not too disheartened. The pieces I have may not be the genuine articles, but they certainly look the part on display with my other 50's stuff (which is genuine)
Thanks tho' Laura for your reply.
I do want to ask tho'... You say "photo 31" but to be honest I can't see a 'photo' 31 and don't know which one you mean? The gallery lists them as files, and file 31 is a piccy of two Scandi vases?
