Reply #2 - Chopin_liszt:
” The work looks a little like a more sophisticated version of the feathery effect produced by Konnstglas Ronneby in their medium sized birds. I'm not sure they would have managed this fabulous bowl and if they had, I'm sure we'd already know about it.”

I can confirm that FM Konstglas/Marcolin in Sweden made vases, bowls, paperweights and abstract sculptures



From MuranoNet:
” This technique was presumably invented by Alfredo Barbini at the V.A.M.S.A. glass factories at the end of the 30s and was used to execute both vases and figures of birds.  Some minor furnaces took this technique up again in the 80s, but for all intents and purposes, it's seldom used.”


”Some minor furnaces took this technique up again in the 80s”

If MuranoNet are saying ”in the 80’s” I take it that they refer to V. Nason and Formia.

I can add the following:
Marcolin used sfumato at Reijmyre in Sweden late 1950’s.
Marcolin used sfumato in Ronneby for 30 years, 1961-1991.
Marcolin continued to use sfumato after they moved their production from Ronneby.

I have some more pictures with the sfumato effect. I am totally fascinated with all the variations different glassworks can create. I just love it!

It is French indeed, classic period St. louis.

Glass / Can anyone id this Scandi style oval dish
« Last post by seanduxbury on Yesterday at 01:45:30 PM »
Hi.  Hope someone can help.  Recently found this Scandi style cased green glass dish.  Similar in style to many others e.g. Holmegaard, Magnor, Flygsfors but unfortunately no marks, signatures or labels to help.  Also I've not been able to marry its size to any other Scandi dish of similar design.  This one measures 30 cm in length x 20 cm wide (at the widest part) and is 13 cm high (at the tallest point) and weighs 1300 gms.  Some good age related scratching on the sheer polished base so I don't believe it's a modern reproduction.  Any help would be much appreciated.  Thanks

I like Ingela have quite a few FM Marcolin items.  I am told that V Nason in Murano produced items very similar.  I would suggest they are more likely to be makers.
