Very interesting. I'd just notified Ingela, who is a member here and an avid FM collector, but see she has posted there anyway!

I have a few pieces myself, but it's the first time I have seen that tiger - an impressive piece :)

Hi taylog1,

Thank you for mentioning this Scandinavian Glass Board.  :hiclp:
We do have a nice collection of pictures in this thread and I think it gives
quite a good overview of FM's production.

However, I must point out that there has been a couple of queries: "Is this
FM Konstglas/Marcolin?" and the answer is sometimes that it is not so there
are a few pictures in this long thread that are not FM objects. If any
queries about any of the objects please contact me and I will do my best to
give an answer.

I have been able to find some really lovely FM objects and I have included a
couple of pictures for you.

regards,

Ingela

Thanks for sharing, Ingela :clap:

It is surprising how diverse the FM output could be. I'm sure I sold one of the latticino bottles as 'Murano' before  :-X and I wonder how many of those milllefiori flasks have been sold as Fratelli Toso (or whatever)?

In particular the green/yellow sommerso dish is striking. Do you know how many different shapes and colour combinations the company produced? I see it has textured sides as well, but all the textured ones I have are plain.

I have a Marcolin brochure and have not seen any panel cut somerso or millefiori glass in there. These are quite specific techniques. So - are these certain attributions, or did the brothers import from the homeland as well?
Title: Re: FM Konstglas Ronneby
Post by: David E on March 18, 2008, 03:28:37 PM
Could these be 'Marcolin' when the brothers returned to Venice?

no FM Ronneby IS Fratelli Marcolin; the larger-than-life brothers tried to switch production to Sardinia Crystal in 1999 but this soon resulted in fisticuffs, and business ceased in retirement. Or so I've been told.

......"the larger-than-life brothers"..........

What do you mean?

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

FM is NOT Fratelli Marcolin. FM stands for Färe-Marcolin.
Josef Marcolin was married to Ingalill Färe, thus the company name
Färe-Marcolin Konstglas AB.

FM closed down in Ronneby in 1991 and the Marcolin brothers went back to
Italy to work with Sardinia Crystal. The idea was to continue production of
the existing range of products but the collaboration did not work out.
Benito moved back to Sweden and Josef to Austria.
I do not have much details about this collaboration but Sardinia Crystal
retained some rights to both the name Marcolin and some of the design for a
number of years. Possibly from 1994-2004.

1994-2001 Benito worked for Vas Vitreum, Vadstena, Sweden.
http://www.vasvitreum.se/

Josef has (after Sardinia Crystal) collaborated with Waterford Crystal,
Dartington Crystal (1997-1999) and also Colle Vilca (Italy).

Colle Vilca produces (since 2004?) the Marcolin Art Crystal collection.

millefiori glass in there. These are quite specific techniques. So - are

well?


The Marcolin brochure. Is that the one you have mentioned earlier, from ca
1990? That one would not show FM's earlier production.

The panel cut somerso was made ca 1965-1971 and the small
latticino/millefiori vases ca 1977-1978.


FM Konstglas in Ronneby was run by skilled glassblowers, trained in the
Murano technique.
During the 1960's and 1970's quite a number of Murano glassblowers moved to
Ronneby to work for FM Konstglas, for longer or shorter time periods.
The Marcolin brothers' brother-in-law Aureliano Toso also worked for FM
Konstglas.
The Murano influence was strong during these years. I do not know if FM had
any need to import from the "homeland".


Do you know how many different shapes and colour combinations the company
produced?

Good question!
I do not have an answer to that question but I know that in 1970 FM
Konstglas had 700 combinations available in different sizes, shapes and
colours.
At http://www.marcolinartcrystal.com/shop/index.php you can get an overview
of the different colour combinations used today by Marcolin Art Crystal.



Ivo records the Marcolin Brothers as having their own company from 1961 to
1994.

You raised this question in another thread and I never got back to you.
Sorry!
The company is still active.

Thanks Ingela!

I would be very interested to learn of the various panel-cut shapes and colour combinations they produced. Also whether they signed them. I have quite a few in green/amber/clear (and other colour combinations), but there are noticable differences between some of them. Of course, mine could have all been produced by Murano makers, so knowing which styles derived from FM Konstglas would be very revealing.

Have you contacted the factory? They might have old catalogues to confirm the various combinations.

Re. the company: I was aware it was still in business, but was really referring to the Marcolin brothers' direct input.

Title: Re: FM Konstglas Ronneby

the panel cut somerso ca 1965-1971

They are not signed but have labels. I do not think I have seen any objects from the 1960's that have been signed.

I have included some additional photos for you.

Ingela,
My FM Ronneby Shark.
Clear over bright blue.It has a very dark amethyst,almost black,core.
Actual length of fish 23" long.
Height is 18" and approximately 16" wide.
Weighs a tonne!
Label bears the flag and reads:
'Genuine Handmade FM Art Crystal.Studio Line.Ronneby Sweden.'
Base is engraved 'B 783-400'
The base mark doesn't fit with the Marcolin size/colour system.
Could the B refer to Benito ? Just a thought...
I'm trying to establish a date for it as I'm hoping to sell.Best guess is 1980s?
 
 :)
Title: Re: FM Konstglas Ronneby
Post by: inca on July 17, 2008, 10:25:38 PM
Beautiful shark! Lovely colours!

'B 783-400'
I'm not quite sure why you think the base mark doesn't fit with the Marcolin
size/colour system?

The base mark is the one used by Marcolin, nothing unusual there.
I can confirm that B stands for Benito. The number of the model is 783.
The size is either in millimeter or centimeter.
400 millimeter (approx. 16"/40 centimeter).

The base on my shark is signed B-783-35.  (35 centimeter).

The label dates your shark to approx. 1980.

------------------

"Clear over bright blue.It has a very dark amethyst,almost black,core."

Here are a couple of other FM objects in these colours.....  :)

Post by: ElaineB on July 17, 2008, 11:30:11 PM
WOW to your stuff!!! :o And thank you so much for your help.The blue colour is just magnificent isn't it?!

Yes Ingela,I am a twit.I guess I should have said I was comparing to similar on the Marcolin Art Crystal website when talking of the colour/size system.The closest I could find to mine was a 14" head down shark or number B-783-35-12B. It seems to be a set of 2 letters and 3 numbers indicating design/size/colour rather than just the 1 letter/2 sets of numbers that is on mine.Nevertheless,it is same as yours so it obviously it corresponds beautifully  ;D

So,would it be safe to guess that Benito designed this item indicated by the prefix 'B'?

Again,Ingela,thank you so much for all your invaluable information;It's very much appreciated.

P.S. I love the Pufferfish!



Title: Re: FM Konstglas Ronneby
Post by: inca on July 17, 2008, 11:52:27 PM
As far as I know the colour codes are only used (in the catalogues and on the Marcolin website) for ordering purposes. So if it's B-783-35-12B on the website it would be signed
B-783-35 on the base of the object.

"So,would it be safe to guess that Benito designed this item indicated by the prefix 'B'?"
Yes!

Here's another blue/amethyst FM object, one of my favourites!  :)

Well, I have just spent the whole evening going through the whole of that site.......I want it all!!! Amazingly, I found the 'Dumbo' style elephant that I bought recently......there, I knew it was quality!!
I am still a bit sceptical about the pink laticino and the blue millefiori vases though.  I am never 100% happy with just a label....sorry! I like to see the engraved signature on the glass itself.  Has anyone been able to prove they are Marcolin?
Now I am off to investigate Granna Glass, 'cos I've got some of that too!!
Title: Re: FM Konstglas Ronneby
Post by: inca on August 06, 2008, 12:38:22 PM

the pink laticino and the blue millefiori vases
+ the panel cut somerso




I'm curious to know...........

Why do some of you doubt that they were made in Ronneby by FM Konstglas/Marcolin?


Looking forward to your answers! Thanks!

Post by: rosieposie on August 06, 2008, 01:40:19 PM
These daintier pieces? 
I would like to have seen them being made to feel absolutely certain....
I have always associated Ronneby with being good healthy sized crystal pieces, with the skill being in the internal colours and textures (as in the birds, and my poor broken elephant :cry:). Or the layering of colours.....?sommerso?.
Yes, I know you can get plain ones as well!!

There was a beautiful piece for sale on eBay this week that had  Sardinia in the engraved signature....this is the first piece I have seen, and probably dates it quite accurately......I wish I had bid for it now.

Oh, no! What have happened to your elephant?


I've seen two Sardinia Crystal objects recently on eBay
- 290248998791 bird and 250278165767 fish -
both approx. from the mid 1990's.

Have you found any more Sardinia Crystal? I try to keep
an eye on them as well.....  ;)
Title: Re: FM Konstglas Ronneby
Post by: rosieposie on August 06, 2008, 09:25:26 PM
Yes Inca, it was the bird I saw.  It was wrongly listed at first, and I emailed the seller to tell her a little more about the origin of the bird, and she relisted it with more info.  I wish I had bid for it now.  But as it didn't sell, she has decided to keep it. 
My poor elephant (broken trunk in the post!) was M588/200 and is Swedish.  Do you know who 'M' was?
There is a lovely  Eagle (Swedish) just been listed, but I still look out for the Sardinian stuff.

Hi rosieposie,

"My poor elephant (broken trunk in the post!)"

I'm sorry to hear about your elephant!


"It was wrongly listed at first, and I emailed the seller to tell her
a little more about the origin of the bird, and she relisted it with more info."



Sardinia Crystal objects recently on eBay
- 290248998791 bird and 250278165767 fish

The objects are not from the 1950's or 1960's.
Sardinia Crystal - if I remember correctly - was started in 1989.
The bird and also the fish were made after the Marcolin brothers left
Ronneby, Sweden.


I would date both objects to approx. the mid 1990's.


According to the eBay listing the bird is signed F172.02.20
F = Inga-Lill Färe
The number of the model is 172
then the size, should read 08 = 8cm (approx 3.25")
the colour code 20 = Royal Black Feather effect inside

The fish is signed M220.12.12
M = Josef Marcolin.
The number of the model is 220
Size 12cm (approx 5")
the colour code 12 = clear + blue

Oh Inca, so he WAS a special Elephant!! :cry:  Actually made by Joseph Marcolin!  :o Sadly, he was only wrapped in newspaper in a box that was too big for him for posting, so it was amazing that it was just his trunk that was broken. I always email sellers asking for extra bubblewrap and padding, and am always prepared to pay extra for postage if necessary, to try to avoid this sort of tragedy.  I am pleased to say that the seller refunded me completely, with good grace, but I would have paid twice as much for that lovely 'ellie'.

You are a wonderful source of information Inca, thanks for your help, I am learning fast, and my interest grows daily. I am pleased to say that I seem to have the knack of choosing worthwhile pieces.

Going back to an earlier thread:

"I'm curious to know...........

Looking forward to your answers! Thanks!"


Inca, can I ask you, if you came across a piece of millefiori or latticino glass that was unsigned, how would you recognise it as being a Konstglas Ronneby piece?

Ronneby piece?


It can of course be difficult to identify something without a label or an
inscription.

To start with I did not expect to come across a piece of millefiori or
latticino glass from FM. But what is typical FM Konstglas, Ronneby? I have
not seen everything that FM have made over the years - 30 years in Ronneby -
so I am constantly prepared to be surprised!
When I started collecting FM at the end of the 1970's I thought that they
only made animal figurines with the "Royal Black Feather/Royal Black Grey"
effect. I have since then discovered numerous colour combinations and that
they also made vases, bowls, paperweights and abstract glass ......... so
why not also millefiori and latticino glass?

_______________________________________________________________
Mentioned earlier:
- FM Konstglas in Ronneby were run by skilled glassblowers, trained in the
Murano technique.
- quite a number of Murano glassblowers moved to Ronneby to work for
FM Konstglas, for longer or shorter time periods.
- The Marcolin brothers' brother-in-law Aureliano Toso also worked for FM
Konstglas.
_____________________________________________________________

I have now also learnt that Luigi Barbaro worked for FM at the end of the
1960's/the beginning of the 1970's, he is the brother of Alessandro Barbaro
http://www.signoretti.it/inglese/barbaro.asp


I have seen, from three different sellers, two blue millefiori vases
(different models) and one latticino vase. All three items had the same type
of FM label. I have also seen these objects at a couple of collector's fairs
previously but I never checked for any labels then as I do not collect this
type of objects.

A few FM objects turn up fairly often but a majority turn up very seldom or
never! So it is nothing odd that only a few millefiori/latticino items have
turned up so far. It could for instance have been a limited production sold
locally in the shop at the glassworks. And if the labels have been removed
then these objects would without any doubt be sold as Murano.

I have also had suggested that labels sometimes 'migrate' from one object to
another.
Well, if there was something to be gained here it would make sense. If you
have a Toso vase that would sell for let us say £60, put a FM label on the
same vase and it would sell for perhaps half the price. There is more money
in Murano objects so no seller in his right mind would 'migrate' labels in
this case.


So far I have seen no reason to doubt that these objects were made in
Ronneby by FM Konstglas.

Thank you for your clear and believable explaination Ingela.  I am so pleased that you have taken the time to tell me so much, and I would also like to thank you for the link to the Signoretti website.....I have just spent the morning enthralled by the skill of those craftsmen.

I feel I have a dicotomy of interests, because I collect both pressed glass pieces and hand blown animals.  One simply delights the eye with its colour and form, the other staggers the mind with the amazing skill and imagination of the creator.

Now that I know a little more about these pieces, I may start looking out for them, and who knows, add another 'branch' to my collectaholic tree!! I can see my husband leaving home as I write!! ::)

Thank you again Ingela, and I am sure many others will be glad to read your response.....who knows we may all be out-bidding each other for a little millefiori vase in the coming weeks!

http://www.signoretti.it/inglese/barbaro.asp

The bird in post number #573 (http://www.precisensan.com/antikforum/showpost.php?p=69049&postcount=573) is actually from a glassworks called Ölandshyttan (Borgholm, Öland, Sweden).
Luigi Barbaro came to Ölandshyttan approx.1975 and he worked there on and off over a period of approx. 10-15 years.


So all I can say is that your pelican most likely is FM but I can't confirm it.

Oh Ingela, I meant to tell you that I bought another elephant.....the same model as the one with the poor broken trunk.  He came all the way from Germany, beautifully and carefully packed, and is sitting next to the one with the broken trunk.........I have now also got a cat, a duck, and a bird, in the same black/grey quilted finish, with the bubble inclusions, so I think we can safely say I am 'hooked'!!

Somehow or another, this reply endid up in the wrong place. so here goes, I will try again!!

I love all your pieces Ingela......the red eyed bird is gorgeous, such a fluid shape.  I recently bought an otter with similar markings to the other lovely bird.  I thought it might have been a cat or a leopard, but then I saw another listed for sale that said it was an otter....if I get time, I will try to post a picture.....I am still playing 'catch ~ up' after having the flu for 3 weeks. I did win the other elephant and when it arrived, it was the same model as the original one that arrived with a broken trunk, so they sit together now!
I have bought another bird that I think is probably Marcolin, and will try to include a picture of that with the otter....OK? :thup:

There is a bird that is coming off eBay today. It looks like Marcolin, but appears to have color in the glass around the core. It is number 220432374428 (not my auction).

I saw that one and yes, it looks like Marcolin.

I sometimes write to eBay sellers with information about the item that
they are selling but not in this case. I have a policy never to write to
this kind of seller as in this listing.

Now this is an interesting fish, an intrigueing one!
It might be Marcolin, it might be V. Nason .....
I won this auction and the item should arrive early next week.
It'll be very interesting when the item arrives!
In the mean time, this is what the fish looks like, I'll have more
photos for you next week.

The fish has now arrived.

I have taken several photos for you. I think this is V. Nason.
