V Nason & Cie block sculptures (some like houses)
« 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.

This is a 3.5" tall light blue glass house, the bottom has slight conclave, very clear and crisp blue color.

This is my favorite for some reason, anyone know anything about it?  It's got great color!

I'm idly wondering if it's a deck prism / pavement light block thingie rather than a wee house? Perhaps Ian can help, I'll ask him to look in.

I would appreciate any help! I'm not too sure what a deck prism or pavement light is...but what ever it is I love looking at this piece!
