Title: Asti Venini Murano glass
Post by: thomas on November 12, 2011, 11:37:12 PM
I was searching websites for glass and found this vase:  http://www.antiquehelper.com/auctionimages/48196t.jpg. 
I was surprised to see it because I once bought a vase just like it.  It was in the attic so I got it out and mine is signed also.  My vase is only 4-3/4" tall - theirs is 9-1/2" tall.  This is not the kind of glass I generally collect but I remember buying it because I liked the design.  I will not send it back to the attic.  I was astonished at the estimate the auction house put on their vase.  Does this glass really have that much value?  I noticed their vase did not sell.  Can anyone date this glassware by decade?  Is this 50's glass or 60's glass?  Or does it date to the 70's.  I bought mine in the early 80's.  The signature looks white because I dusted it with flour.

Try this address instead of the one in the original posting.  This other address only shows the vase instead of the whole auction listing.

Looks the same to me   ;)       (but just warning you I DO wear glasses  8) LOL )

I think it is a match, but maybe one of the Murano people that know Much more that me, as I have never held such a piece.  I am only going by the images.   

I am  :X: for you!!!
