V. Nason - blocks?
« on: November 07, 2006, 11:24:22 PM »
I picked these up at a fleamarket, $9 for both  :)  

Nason Blocks

When I got home I realised they were both signed V Nason in addition to the sticker.

I haven't been able to date these. I found the website some time ago but can't seem to re-find it for some reason  :oops:

Can anyone point me in the right direction, age and website?


Thanks

I've never seen anything like that before from V.Nason - what a find! And I collect V.Nason :shock:

Hey, I wonder if they're supposed to be huge Monopoly houses/hotels! :D

I see what you mean  :wink:

From the thread I assume they're from the 80/90'ies.

I was a bit surprised that they had a v nason signature engraved tho.
Only noticed it as I was washing them.

Thanks for the pointer  :D

Edit : I like the monopoly house theory, the sure do look like them, color and all  :D  

I thought they were quite unusual for murano glass, big chunks with no finery so to speak, I like them tho  :D

I have noticed a signature on larger items, so perhaps that's what they confine it to. I don't think any of the mould-blown black/aventurine vases have sigs though but I always suspected these were much earlier.

How large are these, Alexander?

Not very large at all, the green one is 6cm tall and 5,5cm by 4cm .

The red one is sqare at the base 9cm tall and 5 by 5.

Here is a picture of the signature, apologies for the quality, snapped
them just now with my cellphone.

Hi,  I have nearly the complete set of these now,  including cars and boats!!  They are delightful and I call them my 'jellies' as that is what they look like to me!!

I will post some pics soon as it is a bit late tonight.  :)

A few more:

With the benefit of hindsight and more knowledge of glass,  I think the information given in this posting:

http://www.glassmessages.com/index.php/topic,39443.10.html

where I found a little blue glass house was probably not by the maker mentioned,  but was almost certainly one of these little houses, as it is the same colour as the blue one and the same dimensions as the clear glass one.  I can't be certain,  because I never saw the actual piece and could only go by the write up on the page,  but my gut feeling tells me that the signature was most likely V Nason  and not Miyuki Shinkai. :(
