Anybody know anything about Garza Zafirico?
« on: December 23, 2020, 12:46:01 AM »
Hi All, I have one of these vases that I picked up cheap but never could ID it. Anyone with ideas about this maker? Had a look at some other items made by them and a couple similar to this one.
Merry Christmas to all of you glass nuts here.

Clean and Crisp a Murano twist.
Archimede tops my list.

Could well be right and that sommerso was pretty good for Chinese glass.

I'm fairly sure these have been queried before. I was surprised too.
Chinese glass is getting to be very good.
