If the signature is good, probably a good buy. Sold as a nautical collectable it would skyrocket they are one of the big paying sectors - I can't even beat them for transfer-printed glasses with stupid bids.

It is totally right. These were made for a regatta at one of the prestigious Italian yacht clubs and were done as a special commission by Archimede Seguso. Price is a bit strong, I bought my one for £76 but that was a couple of years ago.
