Title: Interesting Acorn Shaped Lidded Jar
Post by: horochar on July 29, 2006, 12:22:16 AM
Here's today's treasure.  Any thoughts as to who designed and produced it and when?
Thanks,
Charles.

Thanks Javier.  Right, now I see the sticker in the label index at the back of my Heireman's "Murano Glass - Themes & Variations."  Indicates this sticker was used for mass produced export items.    :cry:  I dunno, but the piece seems better than that.  One thing that bugs me a bit is the lid is loose, not snug.  I can't imagine it's a mismatch, top and bottom from different pieces from a series of graduated jars.  Of course any information is always appreciated.  Also, I'm still wondering when it might have been produced.  I can't place it stylistically in a particular period.

It's the powder jar from a Seguso dressing table set made in the 1960's would have had a perfume atomiser, probably a perfume flask and another jar in the set.
