Delicious lilac pulegoso dish - by anyone in particular?
« on: January 02, 2007, 03:12:20 PM »
This is delicious, lilac glass casing a frothy middle bit with lots of sparkly avventurina.. Sides are flattened, and there are small tool marks to the sides too.  Quite a bit of wear around the flat ground polished base.  It's only tiny, 2.5 ins 65 mm across the top.

Obviously Murano I would think but by any particular maker?

Hi Sue, do you mean the one on Javier's Svazzo site? 
It certainly looks similar, doesn't it!

Javier, where are you???  What do you think?
Thank you very much!

Looks like it could be Venini, but did you look to see if its signed?
Another suggestion is Seguso Vetri D' Arte.

Hi Javier!  Happy New Year!

No signature that I can see or feel.  Its a lovely piece, and a very pretty colour.  I'd obviously like it to be a Carlo Scarpo, but there is no point in even suggesting an attribution it if it definitely is not...

Looking at Angela's Glass Museum article by Ursula Losch, it certainly looks very like the Carlo Scarpo "vaso rectangulare" shape shown. Is it known if he made in this small size ?

Can someone explain to me the basic difference between bollicine and pulegoso?
Thank you very much!

Hiya Sue,

I think so too, I just want to get the terminology right.  There is no doubt this is cased and one of Carlo Scarpa's developments seems to be just this cased pulegoso, which he called "sommerso a bollicine" (viz. Ursula Losch).  So is this that treatment?  And if so what is the difference between bollicine and pulegoso? Which both seem to be bubbly glass?
Thank you very much!
