France / Re: d'Avesn poissons vase - modern or old?
« Last post by Natalia on November 17, 2017, 11:43:00 AM »
Thank you all for the answers!
The reason my friend believes this vase has been reproduced is that it has a few layers of glass. He sells opalescent glass as a dealer and assures me it could not be so. He's telling all d'Avesn, Sabino, Lalique, Verlys's pieces must be colored in glass mass. Actually I'm collecting colored multicouche glass such as Daum, Schneider, Paul Nicolas etc and for me a vase blown to a mold having 1-2-3 or more layers is not a fake or reproduction. But I'm not a specialist in Opalescent glass that's why I'm looking for the answers.
I have browsed a lot of auction's sites where this vase was presented or sold and everywhere it looks the same - with this glaze of colorless glass covering the inner turquoise layer.
I also wonder about the signature. Did d'Avesn repeat this signature at his late reproductions? Is there any catalogue or resonnee where all his pieces are attributed, dated and gathered?

thanks Robin  -  looks like you're correct with that interpretation - would agree sometimes it's difficult to refrain from an old habit. :)

Would it be wrong to think that even if this model could have been reproduced later,  it wouldn't have this signature anyway?

Did your Friend give any reasons as to why they think the vase is more recent than the 1930s? Personally I can't see anything wrong with it. It's a well known model and stylistically is very art deco. I'm not aware of this vase having been reproduced later but then again I could be wrong (hence why I'm curious as to the reasons your friend thinks it might be later)...

You're right, Paul. My "salt" is a sweet, according to the catalog, but I can't stop calling it by my old moniker! I'm not defending myself, but often both customers and company marketeers call items multiple names. I think David's small piece with the Stratford rings may really be a true salt.

France / d'Avesn poissons vase - modern or old?
« Last post by Natalia on November 16, 2017, 03:15:28 PM »
Hello)) I'm new here and I need the advice of glass experts))
Recently I've bought a vase "Poissons" by Pierre d'Avesn. A friend of mine told me it was not from 1930th, that the vase was modern (I think he means the vase is from the 1970-80th). First the glass is 3-layered - colorless - colored- colorless. It is seen on the rim. Second the surface is not satinated. But the signature is well represented, in relief and seems to be authentic.
I'll take additional pics if needed. What do you think? Thank you)
