Title: A smattering of Seguso
Post by: ardy on October 14, 2010, 04:47:12 AM
Hi All

I stupidly promised to post a photo of some of my Archimede Seguso collection.

Here is a 21 gun salute to the MAN. Not easy to photograph as a group and I think detracts from them individually.

I also have 6 table lamps and the bathroom set I showed before here: http://www.glassmessages.com/index.php/topic,36506.0.html and there is a set of 3 different size cornucopia vases.

Plus 4 pieces that are in the could be but not proven basket.

Still lots of collecting to do but less the general and more of the specific.

regards

Ardy

 :clap:  Yum yum Ardy, many thanks for sharing, I admire your intention of  SPECIFICALLY collecting Seguso- I could not- as has been noted on the MB before-so little time so much glass.  Thanks again Carol

Thanks for all your kind comments. I suspect it will take me through to the end of this visit to Earth to get a few of the pieces I REALLY want.

The search is getting harder and that makes it more interesting. Must be a bit boring to have limitless dough and just go out and buy whatever you want regardless of cash so that you can fill a collection, wouldn't mind trying it once though.

The tough way most of us go is much more rewarding. My biggest mistake was not bidding high enough on a Ritorto a coste vase. Stupidly tried to get a bargain rather than a good price on a piece I wanted badly.

Forgot to include this one. I really should make a list of them.

regards to all

Beautiful ardy  :mrgreen:...i especially like that huge green and blue shell bowl!

Hi Kane - The blue and green shell bowl was my first A.S. buy and you are right I got the blue one after the green vase off ebay Australia for $30 including a label. Haven't seen anything good by AS that I wanted and was priced right since.

Just bought another AS cornucopia vase whilst we were in Tassie over the weekend. It is VERY large and the Mauve/bluey sort of colour. Will put it on tomorrow or the next day.
