Murano & Italy Glass / Re: Possible Venini vase (Ruiz/Ruis signed)

Venini and an unfinished pontil mark and no Venini signature is -to put it mildly- as improbable as it gets.   Maybe you can ask him directly....

Excellent, thanks M! That confirms what we suspected. :)

there is a link here to Romanian rugs and furniture.
I can certainly see some of these vases fitting well with the designs on these items.

This one has the cartouche type designs and repeat flowers
The seller makes some very interesting comments:
'Bessarabian rugs in pile and tapestry technique originating in Russian provinces as well as Ukraine and Moldova Bulgaria and Romania during the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Produced under late ottoman rule, they stand right on the cusp of European and Oriental carpet weaving. Dimensions: 5' x 7'. Many of the designs crafted in Bessarabian carpets are floral in motif and all works of the Bessarabian category are highly decorative. Many of the designs crafted in Bessarabian carpets are floral in motif. The designs usually fit within a black or brown tone background, executed in a naturalistic western. Some pieces, in particular the flat-weaves, are woven with the distinctive Bessarabian palette in the tradition of Kilim rugs from nearby Anatolia.'

The one above was the most recent one I owned but I've owned a few.  They were all different but all have similarities - the opaline glass body the pale enamelled colours.  This rose one was the one that stood out from the others but I think they are all from a similar region.  Perhaps different villages had different designs?

I think the history of Transylvania as listed here in Wiki, might explain why I thought there were similarities with some Beykoz glass( the pieces with flowers on that I linked to earlier in the thread) and also why I think there are definite similarities with that Transylvanian vase I linked to on Pressglas Korrespondenz -

'Transylvania is a historical region in central Romania. It was part of the Dacian Kingdom (1st–2nd centuries CE), Roman Dacia (2nd–3rd centuries), the Hunnic Empire (4th–5th centuries), the Kingdom of the Gepids (5th–6th centuries), the Avar Khaganate (6th–9th centuries) and the 9th century First Bulgarian Empire. During the late 9th century, western Transylvania was reached by the Hungarian conquerors[1] and later it became part of the Kingdom of Hungary, formed in 1000 CE. After the Battle of Mohács in 1526 it belonged to the Eastern Hungarian Kingdom, from which the Principality of Transylvania emerged. During most of the 16th and 17th centuries, the principality was a vassal state of the Ottoman Empire; however, the principality had dual suzerainty (Ottoman and Habsburg).[2][3] In 1690, the Habsburgs gained possession of Transylvania through the Hungarian crown.'

So there may have been outside influences on the region/s where these were made, hence them having a 'moorish' type style in some instances?

The blue vase I am thinking of (though have no idea by whom it was made) is on the shelf of British glass where they name makers (but only generally rather than specifically to each museum number). In the list they give for that shelf they also include 'Webb& Sons',which might have been what prompted me to look at that Flambe bowl as that has similarities with the foot on yours (Although Webb & sons is not Webb Corbett)

I took a photo of a blue glass vase in a similar shape (as though someone had pushed down the neck into the body slightly if you see what I mean?) in the V & A I think.  I think it was under British Glass, which is what made me look at my other pieces to find that foot (because I'm pretty sure that piece is Webb Corbett).

However ... much to my dismay, whilst I was at the V&A I was able to use their computer to search for glass under the museum code they had set next to each piece, but once I got home I found I was unable to do so!  Really annoying as I carefully took pics with the numbers showing so I would be able to do so once home.

I'll try and find the picture and double check it was under British Glass.
