Glass Paperweights / Re: Murano paperweight with very colourful canes - AVeM?
« Last post by KevinH on March 30, 2015, 12:47:48 PM »
From the the link that Michael provided in the original post, I have updated Rose's earlier thread from 2010 to state "AVEM (probable maker)" in the title. I will do the same for this thread, and also add a link to here from Rose's thread.

I agree that the evidence we now have, form this and earlier threads, and from research by board member Anita, gives a strong suggestion that certain types of cane are an indicator of AVEM production - even though lots of sales items state "Fratelli Toso" as the maker. The problem we still have, however, with Murano millefiori is a lack of company-provided proof of specific cane colours and types.

On the point of cane colours, I personally have a dislike of what I have called 'the "sickly" shade of orange and yellows' - see the thread for a "mushroom type" item that has the same sort of canes as in the weight in this current thread. Perhaps those colours that I dislike may be an "AVEM marker" - or is that too much of a generalisation for what may be a "generic Mediterranean" colour palette used by many Murano companies? :)

Ahhh,slight embarrassment from me I'm afraid,that'll be my photo's Ivo the glass is clean and clear but I had rinsed it out just before taking the photos,so the bits are just dirt in from the inside and I guess the bubbles are droplets of water,many apologies should have stated that.

Glass / Re: Christopher Dresser design?

Thanks for looking, I thought perhaps it was a Dresser design as the top of the jug is the same as one with a different glass body, which I have seen attributed to Dresser. I understand that the company's design records were destroyed when the company closed in 1953 so maybe I will never know for sure.

Thanks for the replies,I've had a quick skirt around the intoe and I'm seeing the colour and look of neodymium but not the feel of this piece,apart from the sculpture ones,this seems softer and then chuck in an ancient Chinese type rim?

Doesn't pop up in Harry Lyons' Christopher Dresser - The People's Designer - 1834-1904.

No, it's neodymium that goes greenish or bluish from purple under low energy and fluorescent bulbs
