Title: Heavy Red Bowl/Ashtray (1st of 2)
Post by: horochar on November 24, 2009, 01:28:31 PM
I'm hoping somebody can help me to identify the maker and vintage of this nice Murano bowl or ashtray.  It has ample amounts of gold and really sparkles.

Thanks,
Charles.

I can't tell much about the glass from the pictures, but the form looks like it could be a Seguso piece -- not sure.

Yes looks like it could be Seguso Vetri D. Dont think it is A.Seguso but happy to be proven wrong.

I don't think this is a Seguso piece. The glass seems a bit thin and the way the gold foil is spread throughout the bowl along with the colour of the bowl itself, does not seem to fit. Is definitely Murano though, but in my opinion as to whom!!!???
