Meza Filigrana large vase
« on: October 18, 2006, 05:22:34 PM »
Now I have a real dilema with this, when I bought it I was pretty certain it was a Dino Martens meza filigrana for Aureliano Toso, but a fellow collector swears blind it's Fratelli Toso. One for Laura or Javier to put me out of my misery, it's 10 inches high and beautifulwith original label to the base.

See, this one also has that little yellow label we were talking about earlier.
Not sure off hand, but will give it some thought.

It would have been kinder to shoot me to put me out of my misery than tell me that (LOL).
Trouble is I can't find this exact one in either the Martens or Fratelli Toso books, but I'm renown for missing the obvious.

Generic Murano vase, in my opinion; many glassmakers can make a piece like this.

I'm a neophyte so my opinion is next to worthless, but it looks like Fratelli Toso to me.  However, why would they use this label when they had the familiar (and perfectly good) blue & silver circle label "Murano Glass Made in Italy"?  Whatever it is, it looks great.
