Barovier vase, but which Barovier?
« on: October 23, 2006, 11:55:09 PM »
Hi, i hope someone can help me with this, i'm still new to Murano glass.

The piece is credited to Barovier & Toso but the signature doesn't match.

Any help with id and valuation would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Alexander

Maybe they were drunk when they made it and signed it  :wink:

It looks a little wonky  :shock:

Hello Alexander,
It doesnt look like any Murano signature i've seen before.
I'm going to bump this to the main glass board as soon as I get a responce from you, so you know where your topic went.

Thanks - it's a real conundrum, i've spent hours and hours on websites trying to match the signature and style.

I recall seeing something similar at a website dedicated to Murano glass but i haven't been able to find it again.

I've seen solo Ercole Barovier signatures and the 'r' on the end matches but all i've seen have had a lower case 'b' - so i'm officially stumped.

Can anyone help out Alexander?
I dont believe that is a Barovier signature, since its missing 1 or 2 letters.
Maybe one here can recignize it?

Good luck with this one Alexander!
