ID help with a cobalt blue vase handpainted with flowers
« on: April 23, 2007, 03:50:59 PM »
On behalf of a friend who likes this cobalt blue vase.
It appears to have applied flowers made of another material which are then (roughly) painted over by hand.

Any clues?

I've got one myself, but I have no idea what the flowers are made of!  They look like some sort of plaster.  It's from Murano.  I saw (and filmed) them being decorated when I was there a few years ago.

Highrise enamel and gold, also known as Terzo Fuoco (three times fired - the enamel and the gold need to be fused on in seperate operations).
They indeed make this sort of work in and around Murano - but the largest producers are from the Czech Republic, notably Anton R├╝ckl at Vcelnicka - but there must be a dozen others there as well. The difference between Italian and Czech produce is very hard to see, I think there are only stylistic indications not technical.
