Murano & Italy Glass / Re: Cenedese 'Scavo' Style Bottle

Rubbing talc or cornflour, or a fine brown powder (think spices) into the signature may help to make it legible but will wash off

Murano & Italy Glass / Re: Cenedese 'Scavo' Style Bottle
« Last post by Ivo on June 30, 2016, 12:18:03 PM »
This is tricky. Yes it is satinated, not scavo. And you' re probably right about the maker. But
Mario ticco is a well known glass designer who worked for all the big Murano companies, but is no maestro, which is a master glass blower. And Mario Fiocco is a most feasible name, which does not google well.
So I think you should make some good photographs, against a white background, and send them to Cenedese. I'm sure they will be delighted to tell you who and when. Oh and while you're at it, make a good shot of the signature. We can not do much for you without this essential information.
Glass / Re: Bowl / ashtray- Mtarfa signature ?
« Last post by chopin-liszt on June 30, 2016, 11:55:41 AM »
Yes. And a lovely and unusual thing too. I've seen paperweights with a similar internal structure, in pink, but a small and very thick bowl is not something I've seen from Mtarfa before.

The small, very thick bowls from Mdina are not overly common either, and the similarity of shape leads me to suspect it might be early Mtarfa - before they really diversified in their own designs. Early Mtarfa is fairly easy to mistake for early-ish Mdina. Mtarfa was not set up until 1981.

Glass / Bowl / ashtray- Mtarfa signature ?
« Last post by Scott13 on June 30, 2016, 05:56:31 AM »
Hi, could this be one of Mtarfa's esoteric signatures- certainly the colours and base look right.

Interestingly, there appears to be an inner core of clear glass, separating the two design features.

Its weight is 850 gms
Ht 6 cms
Diam 13 cms

Thanks for looking  :)
